Aqua and Viirs Chl seem to agree pretty well. So I was thinking of merging the two datasets in order to get better spatial coverage. What would be the best way to do that be? In the L3b files the mean Chl is calculated for each bin as: sum/weights. So I was thinking of calculating a mean merged Chl as: (sum Chl Aqua + sum Chl Viirs) / (sum weights Aqua + sum weights Viirs). Does that sound ok? Thanks,
