Title: EMIS - SeaWiFS Monthly climatology primary production (4km) in gC.m^^-1


Water productivity (primary production, pp in at 4km resolution): The primary production represents the amount of organic carbon produced through phytoplankton photosynthesis. It is a critical element of the Earth's carbon budget and the marine food web. The depth-integrated primary production is modeled from the satellite-based phytoplankton biomass concentration and PAR.
