Ocean Color SMI: Standard Mapped Image MODIS Aqua Data (NASA/OCEANDATA/MODIS-Aqua/L3SMI)

This level 3 product includes ocean color and satellite ocean biology data
produced or collected under EOSDIS.

This dataset may be used for studying the biology and hydrology of
coastal zones, changes in the diversity and geographical distribution of
coastal marine habitats, biogeochemical fluxes and their influence in
Earth’s oceans and climate over time, and finally the impact of
climate and environmental variability and change on ocean ecosystems
and the biodiversity they support.

Scale factor and offset are already applied.
