Chlorophyll Alpha (MODIS, Mapped 4km) - Aqua

Abstract:
MODIS provides the unprecedented ability to measure chlorophyll fluorescence, which gives insight into the health of phytoplankton in the ocean. When phytoplankton are under stress, they no longer photosynthesise and begin to emit absorbed sunlight as fluorescence. Measurements of the chlorophyll fluorescence can be used to describe the physiological state of the phytoplankton, help to determine the cause of phytoplankton bloom collapses and help to make more robust estimates of primary productivity on a global scale.
