Ocean Biomes Mapped from Satellite
This figure appears in the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2010 report.
Novel mathematical approaches and satellite imagery allow the mapping of ocean biomes. The equal area projection map shown is for the year 2006 and is constructed using ocean color and sea surface temperature data acquired by NASA’s MODIS-Aqua. Colors identify distinct classifications (province types) and do not represent the value of any of the predictor variables. Credit: M.J. Oliver, Rutgers University, and A.J.
