Recent PACE Data Maps

PACE Chlorophyll is the near-surface concentration of the green pigment, chlorophyll a, at the ocean surface. Found in tiny photosynthetic organisms – phytoplankton – chlorophyll is a measure of ocean ecosystem health. These provisional PACE-OCI maps are available from the Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC).

Colors in these provisional products indicate the concentration of chlorophyll in our ocean averaged over eight days. Click on the images (below) for a closer view. From there, you can click the left/right arrows to move between maps.
