Description:
Abstract:
The Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor is mounted on the SeaStar satellite. Spectral data is collected to view global ocean color. SeaWiFS data were used during the MUSE project to help scientists follow upwelling fronts of nutrient-rich waters that attract phytoplankton.
Purpose: This data was collected for oceanographic research

Process_Description:
L2 SeaWiFS files are retrieved from NASA. They are processed into chlorophyll a images using SeaDAS, a SeaWiFS data processing software. The file, mbari.lut, is used as the colormap for the images. Processing scripts include: musechla.pro for bulk processing, and chlabit1.pro, chlabit2.pro, chlabit3.pro for bit shifting (add instructions within programs for more info).~!!!!
