Custom Products





Welcome to the NPP Products path. Here you can access ocean net primary production (NPP) data for alternative NPP algorithms and using either SeaWiFS, MODIS or VIIRS data. You will also find visual comparisons of NPP algorithm products at different temporal scales (e.g., annual, monthly), brief descriptions of each algorithm, and code for your own algorithm implementation. To navigate the NPP Products page, begin by selecting one of the top-level tabs located above (i.e., Online Data, Visual Comparision, Model Description, Code).

To proceed directly to online data, simply click on one of the NPP images below. The first image will provide access to standard VGPM algorithm products, the second gives NPP estimates from the Eppley-VGPM, the third gives access to NPP data from the updated (spectrally-resolved and depth-resolved) Carbon-based Production Model-2 (CbPM2), and the fourth from the absorption based CAFE Model. Online products are provided at 8day and monthly time periods, and cover both (1080 x 2160) and (2160 x 4320) global grids in hdf format.
