Abstract:

Monthly averages of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST), the Sub-surface chlorophyll-a concentration (Chl), the colored dissolved and detrital organic materials at 443 nm (acdm[443]) and the particulate backscattering coefficient at 443 nm (bbp[443]) around Moorea are obtained or derived from satellite data (SST from AVHRR and MODIS-Aqua; Chl, acdm[443] and bbp[443] from SeaWiFS and MODIS-AQUA). The satellite data are averaged over a 1 month period for geographic areas of 16S-19S/147W-151W (SeaWiFS and MODIS-AQUA) and 15S-20S/145W-155W for AVHRR.

Detailed Data Description and Download:
Monthly ocean color and sea surface temperature
Sub-surface chlorophyll concentration and sub-surface adsorption coefficient, derived from SeaWiFS and MODIS AQUA, and particulate backscattering coefficient and night sea surface temperature from MODIS AQUA are aggregated monthly along with the standard deviation and anomaly for each of these monthly values.
Weekly ocean color and sea surface temperature
Sub-surface chlorophyll concentration and sub-surface adsorption coefficient, derived from SeaWiFS and MODIS AQUA, and particulate backscattering coefficient and night sea surface temperature from MODIS AQUA are aggregated weekly along with the standard deviation and anomaly for each of these weekly values. Weeks are defined as 8-day periods.
Average monthly sea surface temperature
Average monthly sea surface temperature from merged AVHRR and in situ data.

Data Set Usage Rights

Data collected under the auspices of the MCR LTER are available to the public after primary publication, or at most two years after the completion of the study unless proprietary restrictions are warranted. Use of MCR LTER data is subject to acceptance of the following conditions:

  • 1. The user agrees to provide valid name and contact information prior to downloading online data. This information will be used to contact the user in case of changes to the data, and may also be used by data set authors and MCR LTER project administrators to document data usage.
  • 2. The user agrees to cite the data set author and MCR LTER in all publications in which the data are used, as per the instructions in the data documentation. If no specific instructions are provided in the data documentation, the user is requested to include the following statement: "Data sets were provided by the Moorea Coral Reef Ecosystem LTER, funded by the US National Science Foundation (OCE-0417412)."
  • 3. The user agrees to provide one copy of any manuscript based on MCR LTER data to the data set author prior to submitting it for publication.
  • 4. The user agrees to send two hard copies of any published manuscript based on MCR LTER data to the following address: Dr. Andrew J. Brooks Deputy Program Director, MCR LTER Marine Science Institute University of California Santa Barbara, CA 93106-6150 The user also agrees to send one electronic copy (pdf format) to the following e-mail address: brooks@msi.ucsb.edu
  • 5. Users are prohibited from selling or redistributing any data provided by MCR LTER without explicit prior permission.
  • 6. Users are encouraged to contact original investigators responsible for data. Where appropriate, researchers whose projects are integrally dependent on MCR LTER data are encouraged to consider collaboration and/or co-authorship with original investigators.
  • 7. Extensive efforts are made to ensure that online data are accurate and up to date, but the authors and the MCR LTER will not take responsibility for any errors that may exist in data provided online. Furthermore, the user assumes all responsibility for errors in analysis or judgment resulting from use of the data.
  • 8. Any violation of the terms of this agreement will result in immediate forfeiture of the data and loss of access privileges to other MCR LTER data sets.
