MODIS-based monthly dataset of POC flux in the bottom of the global ocean euphotic layer (2003-2018) was developed based on the e-ratio data and the NPP data. In which, the e-ratio data was calculated using monthly MODIS sea surface temperature (SST), chlorophyll concentration (Chl) and euphotic zone depth (Zeu) data with the estimation model (Dunne et al. 2005). The dataset is monthly data with a spatial resolution of 9 km. Each data file includes two parameters: poc_flux and pe_ratio, the former is POC flux and the latter is e-ratio. The dataset is archived in .hdf data format, and consists of 192 data files with data size of 13.3 GB (compressed into 16 files, 4.48 GB). The research paper based on this dataset was published in Remote Sensing, Volume 11, Issue 24, 2019.Browse
