Chlorophyll product

I am currently reviewing the NASA OceanColor Chlorophyll products and I can't find the flags and/or masking products. I need some guidance towards documentation and download for these.

Thank you!

Hi Giovanni,

You can find all the information regarding the quality flags on this webpage:

If you are using the L2 products, the flags and masks are included in the file. One easy way to find those info is opening the data file in SeaDAS. For L3 data, there is no such information included in the file since only the flag-free (doesn't have any of those 16 flags)/highest-quality data is included in the data binning procedure.

Hope that helps,
