Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
This may help. In SeaDAS, there is a pixel extraction tool. Menu > Raster > Extract > Extract Pixel Values. This tool extracts pixels from a raster grid around a placed pin in the GUI view window (or a set of pins). You can adjust the extraction grid size as well as set flags. This tool will extract ALL bands from your file as (column) entries in the exported text file, so if you only want the chlor_a band, you can delete the other bands in your file prior to extraction.
