I'm using chlorophyll concentration from subscripted level 2 MODIS images (Mapped NRT Data) and I'd like also to get the SST measurements, but the values don't look like Celsius degree.
Does anyone knows how to convert these values to Celsius degree unit?

From my sst image, the unit should be Celsius degree.
The chlorophyll is stored as a floating point value in the L2 HDF file.
SST, however, is stored as a scaled integer. The scaling factor is
included in the SDS attributes. SeaDAS (as Long showed) will
correctly interpret the SDS scaling. If you are not using SeaDAS,
you will have to do the scaling on your own.
Sorry Sean, a bit off topic, but is there any way to possibly get the measurements in fahrenheit?
F = ((C / 5.) * 9.) + 32.
I realize the sillyness of my question now. Thanks Sean, I'll just convert it. Need it for an Oceancolor marketing
project I'm working on which will be based in the US and used by non-scientists here.
