SeaDAS Chlor-A and Phytoplankton Units

by clangley01 » Mon Aug 23, 2021 9:14 pm America/New_York

I have been doing data analysis using CSV exports of SeaDAS data, looking particularly at chlor-a and phytoplankton values. While the distribution of the values makes sense, I cannot seem to find the units of these values anywhere. I am attaching a screenshot of the CSV file as I have it.

I am still somewhat a novice, so if I need to clarify/specify anything, please let me know.

Did you use File -> Export -> CSV to export an L2 file in SeaDAS-8.1.0? Can you share the name of your L2 file?

If you open your L2 file in SeaDAS, Metadata -> Band_Attributes -> chlor_a will show you the units of chlor_a
