Blended In Situ-CZCS Chlorophyll Data Set

Blended In Situ-CZCS Chlorophyll Data Set associated with Global Seasonal Climatologies of Ocean Chlorophyll: Blending In situ and Satellite Data for the CZCS Era (pdf, 0.5 MB) by Watson W. Gregg (NASA/GSFC), Margarita E. Conkright (NOAA/NODC).

The historical archives of in situ (National Oceanographic Data Center) and satellite (Coastal Zone Color Scanner) chlorophyll data were combined using the blended analysis method of Reynolds [1988] in an attempt to construct an improved climatological seasonal representation of global chlorophyll distributions.
