CHLOROPHYLL A UNIT

by alin1234 » Sat May 25, 2024 7:31 am America/New_York

Hello,

I recently extracted Chlorophyll A data level 3. Can I ask if this is already in the mg/m3 unit? Or do I need to convert it first? Most of my data from chl-a January-December 2020 ranges from 0-100.


Your response is highly appreciated. Thank you for your time

The variable has a units attribute that you can check to verify the units, but yes, the units for the chlorophyll product are in mg /m3 :D

Thanks a lot OB.DAAC - SeanBailey!! Quick question, my extracted data ranges from 50-100 in this case mg/m3. Isn't it considered very high and is not typical for most oceanic environments even with monthly average?

Yes, 50-100 is on the high end. What is your region of interest?
