Using R and satellite data to identify marine bioregions

R blog By January 30, 2017 Tags: , , , No Comments

R has become an essential tool in oceanography and marine ecology. For instance, R is specifically used to read, process and represent in situ oceanographic data and to manage satellite data in order to produce high temporal and spatial resolution maps useful to synoptically explore and monitoring vast areas of the world oceans. In this post we briefly describe a practical use of R in conjunction with satellite data to identify marine bioregions of the Labrador Sea with different patters in the phytoplankton seasonal cycle.
