Abstract:
The SynSenPFT product is presented as chlorophyll "a" concentrations (Chla) for diatoms, coccolithophores and cyanobacteria (some of the phytoplankton functional types, PFT) obtained globally over the World Ocean on a 4 km sinusoidal grid on a daily basis over the period of August 2002 - March 2012. The SynSenPFT is a synergistic combination of the PFT products of initial-input OC-PFT (Hirata et al., 2011, Soppa et al., 2014) applied to
total chlorophyll "a" (TChla) data of Ocean Colour Climate Change Initiative (OC-CCI, Version 2, ESA) and PhytoDOAS (Bracher et al., 2009, Sadeghi et al., 2012) version 3.3 available at doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.870486 with an optimal interpolation (OI). The OI method is applied to OC-PFT and PhytoDOAS Chla products of diatoms, cyanobacteria (called prokarytoes by the OC-PFT method) and haptophytes (for OC-PFT) and coccolithophores (for PhytoDOAS). Note that OC-PFT retrieves haptophytes while PhytoDOAS retrieves coccolithophores, a (often dominating) sub-group of haptophytes. Algorithmically, the SynSenPFT is an update of OC-PFT Chla with PhytoDOAS Chla values weighted in accordance to our degree of belief to both initial-input data products. Within the current version of SynSenPFT algorithm the update is done for every sub-pixel of OC-PFT within a PhytoDOAS pixel. Thus, SynSenPFT in every OC-PFT sub-pixel on average is nudged towards PhytoDOAS values as close as allowed by the prescribed PhytoDOAS and OC-PFT error statistics.
