Lineage Annual data on sea surface temperature and chlorophyll are part of Ocean level 3 standard mapped products distributed by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre's Ocean Data Processing System (ODPS). The current dataseries is generated from MODIS AQUA. Data represent a mean at each grid point of the parameter measured by the satellite, in this case Chlorophyll A and SST. Data are downloadable using QGIS Oceancolor plugin by Lousie Ireland. Data are clipped to the Falklands and South Georgia EEZ.
