Title: GMIS - SeaWiFS Monthly anomalies absorption coefficient due to phytoplankton at 443nm (4km) in %

Description

Absorption Coefficient of Phytoplankton at 443nm (aph in m^-1 at 4km resolution): The absorption coefficient aph represents the fraction of incident light absorbed by phytoplankton organisms. It is an index of variability of the phytoplankton biomass in marine and coastal turbid waters.
