Productivity in the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem using ocean colour and SST data (“Analyzing and comparing of a high and low productivity period (summer and a winter) in the Benguela using DevCoCast broadcast ocean color and SST with fluorometrically determine in-situ chlorophyll-a and temperature data in 2009”) Deon Louw (NatMIRC) and Valborg Byfield (NOCS) Monthly chlorophyll-a concentrations at the 10nm station on the 23º00S line off Wallvis Bay measured in µg/L.
Objectives Compare the in-situ data with RS data Creating a weekly composite Time series analysis ILWIS

(A) Comparison of the RS data with the in-situ data (1km) Step 1 Import image using the GEONETCast ToolBox
Step 2 Define your sampling point/s by creating a Point Map Map_1Map_2Map_3 Map_Raw Map_Border Map_Station s (A) Create a Domain (B) Create a Table (C) Create a Point Map
Step 3 Extract data (A) Reading of actual values from the image (C) By creating a Table using Map List (B) By creating a Table with the remote sensing data of interest in it
Step 4 Comparative analysis of the match-ups Remote Sensing Data In-situ Data Scatter plots
