EMIS - MODIS-AQUA Monthly climatology sea surface diffuse attenuation coefficient at 490nm (4km) in m^-1
Water Transparency (Diffuse attenuation coefficient at 490nm, Kd490 in m^-1 at 4km resolution): The diffuse attenuation coefficient Kd490 measures the light penetration in the water column at the blue-green wavelengths (ca. 490 nm). It represents a good indicator of water transparency resulting from the combined action of absorption and backscattering by the water constituents, and the structure of the surrounding light field.
