Downloading chlorophyll data using MGET

By |2017-10-31T16:29:43+00:00December 17th, 2015|BLOG|0 Comments

MGET is a set of tools that provides us the capability to download chlorophyll data. This kind of data is really important for modeling and visualizing raster layers according to the presence of chlorophyll on the map. To start with, we are going to search for NASA GSFC Ocean Color. This website hosts a great deal [...]
