Main content

Estimates of ocean net primary production (NPP)  "At this time, Standard Products are based on the original description of the Vertically Generalized Production Model (VGPM) ( Behrenfeld & Falkowski 1997a), MODIS surface chlorophyll concentrations (Chlsat), MODIS sea surface temperature data (SST), and MODIS cloud-corrected incident daily photosynthetically active radiation (PAR)."
