Marine Optical Characterization Experiment in situ pigment database for the Central North Pacific from the Americas to west of Hawaii during 1992 - 2004 (NODC Accession 0010454)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This biological oceanographic dataset was derived from cruises in support of the the validation of satellite ocean color imagery data collected by the Sea-Viewing Wide-Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). Cruises were on various vessels over 1992-2004. Collection instruments varied among bottle, bucket, and cooler samples, Seabird, MLML, and SeaCAT sensors, pump systems, and vessel-mounted seachest/intake pipes. Includes both shipboard/field and laboratory fluorometrics. Collection methods varied among track continuous sampling, grid, profile, station, calibration, diver, and dock. This pigment database contains estimates of chlorophyll_a concentrations and many miscellaneous biological fields, such as PHAEO, TPG, phytin_a, chl_a_allom, chl_a_prime, mv_chl_a, to name a few.
