MODIS Aqua Level 3 Monthly Mapped 9 km Chlorophyll

This algorithm returns the near-surface concentration of chlorophyll-a (chlor_a) in mg m-3, calculated using an empirical relationship derived from in situ measurements of chlor_a and blue-to-green band ratios of in situ remote sensing reflectances (Rrs). Implementation is contingent on the availability three or more sensor bands spanning the 440 - 570 nm spectral regime. The algorithm is applicable to all current ocean color sensors. The chlor_a product is included as part of the standard Level-2 OC product suite and the Level-3 CHL product suite.
