Title: EMIS - BLACK SEA Monthly climatology sea surface Chlorophyll-a concentration in mg.m^-3

Description

Monthly climatology sea surface Chlorophyll-a concentration (in mg.m^-3 (log10)) for the Black sea derived from the MODIS-AQUA sensor (Satellite remote sensing Ocean color data): Chlorophyll is a photosynthetic pigment commonly present in all phytoplankton species. It is used as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. Chlorophyll concentration is a standard product from satellite-based optical sensors, usually retrieved from empirical algorithms using reflectance ratios at two or more wavebands.
