SPECIAL MESSAGE:

GOES-13 Sounder IR data is not available. All products from GOES-13 (GOES-East) Sounder IR data have been halted and distribution has been stopped except the Sounder ASOS SCP products for CONUS, which are replaced with GOES-East Imager ASOS SCP products for CONUS. Engineers are investigating the problem.

MODIS / Aqua NIR-SWIR Ocean Color Products

The MODIS/Aqua NIR-SWIR ocean color products are derived by using the shortwave infrared (SWIR)-based atmospheric correction algorithm developed by the NOAA/NESDIS Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR). The products include chlorophyll concentration, remote sensing reflectance at 667 nm, water attenuation coefficient at 490 nm over 12 CoastWatch Regions-of-Interest, i.e., Northeast (NE), Southeast (SE), Gulf of Mexico (GOM), Caribbean (CB), West Coast (WC), Alaska (AK), East Tropical Pacific (EP), Equatorial Atlantic (EA), Great Lakes (GL), Hawaii (HI), North Atlantic (NA), and Pacific Basin (PB).

Remote sensing reflectances (Rrs 665, 667 or 670 nm) provide a proxy for the suspended sediments in surface waters. The Rrs anomaly is generated when today's data is compared to the bi-monthly mean. Bi-monthly mean values are averages calculated over 61 days.
