Abstract

Mapping Ivorian Continental Shelf Surface Current Using Modis Ocean Color Images: A Maximum Cross Correlation Approach

Water motion in the Gulf of Guinea is to a certain extent the basis of the pelagic species distribution and on the other hand, is also the pollution vector. The purpose of the study is to thoroughly understand the sea surface current of the Ivorian continental shelf on the local scale. For this study, the Maximum Cross Correlation (MCC) method is applied on chlorophyll concentration data at 1.1 Km resolution, extracted on selected MODIS satellite imageries acquired from the orbiting AQUA and TERRA satellites and are thereafter filtered to produce an image of composite vectors showing sea surface velocities.
