Abstract

The "Black Sea DIVA 4D analysis of Water_body_chlorophyll-a" is the 4D gridded analysis for Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies in the Black Sea. The analysis was performed per season using DIVA software tool (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis). The analyses products are stored as NetCDF CF files and made available as WMS layers for easy browsing and adding. Dynamic plots obtained as a combination of WPS/WMS (Density information available by colours, time series and vertical profiles) were uploaded to 'EMODnet Chemistry Viewing and Downloading Service'. Every step of the time dimension corresponds to a 10-year average moving from 2000 to 2014. The depth dimension spans from surface to the seafloor with 4 vertical levels. The data used as input for DIVA have been extracted from the EMODnet Chemistry Download Service:http://emodnet-chemistry.maris2.nl/v_cdi_v3/search.asp
