Folder Colored Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM) (MYD24)

CDOMColored, or Chloromorphic, Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM) is a measurement of the absorption of light in the UV and visible spectrum by the colored component of the dissolved organic carbon (DOC).A monthly, 4 km spatial resolution product has been provided to CAFF for the months of March-October. In the winter months, sea ice limits the detection of ocean primary production, so little CDOM can be seen until the sea ice thaws. CDOM is measured by a CDOM Index, which has no units.
