Characterization of Carbon Matter in Ocean Ecosystems

Characterization of Carbon Matter in Ocean Ecosystems

These data compare two algorithms used to infer the global climatology. Chlorophyll a concentrations differ, approaching 100% at high latitudes. The right-hand panel shows the global estimate of colored dissolved organic material (CDOM). Credit: D.A. Siegel, University of California, Santa Barbara; S.
