MODIS / Aqua Ehux Bloom Map Products

Global Ehux products illustrate the presence/absence, areal extent, and timing of blooms of the sentinel coccolithophorid species Emilliania huxleyi (a calcite producing single-celled algae) and the resulting calcite concentration. The products include 8-day composites maps of E. huxleyi bloom presence and calcite concentrations on a global basis from Aqua MODIS data at 4km resolution by using the algorithm developed by Brown and Yoder (1994).
