Much of our software is now on GitHub. It includes software for inline data processing and analysis, software associated with profiling floats and ocean color remote sensing.

Code for estimation of phytoplankton accessory pigment from hyperspectral Rrs data, used in Chase et al., JGR-Oceans, 2017: pigments_from_Rrs.

Ali Chase's code for decomposition of particulate absorption spectra into Gaussian components, used in Chase et al., MiO, 2014: decomposition_code, and a newer version decomposition_code_new.

Codes for ecosystem simulations used in Behrenfeld and Boss, ARMS, 2014:

MATLAB code for measuring seawater inherent optical properties in and out of the water. Summary  Code
