Ocean Productivity

Ocean Net Primary Productivity data products derived from MODIS and/or SeaWiFS data available from Oregon State University.

This site is intended to provide the science and broader communities with global, updated ocean productivity estimates. In addition, the website provides information on the models employed, access to model code and ancillary data sets, and comparisons of productivity estimates for alternative models. Field data sets relevant to ocean productivity modeling are also provided and will be continually expanded as new data become available. Educational material and background information on phytoplankton ecology and physiology will also be added in the future.
