How I can get carbon concentration that capture phytoplankt

Hi everybody.

I need more information about how I can get carbon concentration that capture phytoplankton with satelital images (LANDSAT OR MODIS) ???

Now, I have the chlorophyll concentration in mg/m^3 but I don't know what I need to do for get this. :shock:

Hi, Could you please iterate your question more clearly ? I don't think you could retrieve carbon concentration from chlorophyll measurement, but you may need do lots of research on this.

Chlorophyll-a gives you an estimate of the total number of chlorophyll-a for that given bin. It should not be interpreted as a measurement of carbon. If you need a measurement of Carbon one would need to go to the orbiting carbon observatory. More information can be found here.

http://oco.jpl.nasa.gov

If you need help with MODIS let me know. There are parameters for organic matter which might be useful.

I recommend talking a look at:

Another site that might be of interest is:
http://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov

It gives a very nice overview of the different parameters that are derived from MODIS and VIIRS.
Also provides visualization.
