Abstract

In this paper we present a automatic processing of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images using the SeaDAS software, to provide continuous information regarding phytoplankton content and sea surface temperature values of Mexican seas. This automatic processing has permitted obtaining near-real-time ocean products (Level 2): Ocean Color [Chlorophyll-a concentration Pigment OC3 Algorithm, Diffuse Attenuation Coefficient at 488 urn (K490), Total Suspended Matter concentration from Clark, Chlorophyll Fluorescence Line Height, Remote Sensing Reflectance, Water-leaving radiance at 488 nm, and Aerosol optical depth at 868 nm], and the Sea Surface Temperature. The generated products are being used in time series analyses and for testing their relationship with other ecological parameters in various projects of Mexican institutions.
