- To provide data that can assist in the extraction and analysis of chlorophyll-a concentration and trends from global grids.
- The Ancillary Data component of the Indicators of Coastal Water Quality Collection includes a 5 arc-minute (approximately 9 x 9 km at the equator) sequence grid, grid cell centroids that relate to the grid cells in the tabular "Indicators of Coastal Water Quality: Change in Chlorophyll-a Concentration 1998-2007" data set, and a country buffer data set that is divided by exclusive economic zones (EEZ). The data are produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
