Moving 6-year analysis of chlorophyll-a in the Arctic Region for each season: winter (December-February), spring (March-May), summer (June-August) and autumn (September-November). Every year of the time dimension corresponds to the 6-year centred average of each season. 6-year periods span from 1980-1985, 1981-1986, ....., until 2012-2017. Depth range (IODE standard depths): -300.0, -250.0, -200.0, -150.0, -125.0, -100.0, -75.0, -50.0,-40.0, -30.0, -20.0, -10.0, -5.0, -0.0. Data Sources: observational data from SeaDataNet/EMODnet Chemistry Data Network. Description of DIVA analysis: Geostatistical data analysis by DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis) tool. GEBCO 1min topography is used for the contouring preparation. Analysed field masked using relative error threshold 0.3 and 0.5. DIVA settings: signal-to-noise ratio and correlation length were estimated using data mean distance as a minimum (for L) and vertically filtered. Background field: A reference field of all seasonal data between 1980-2017. Detrending of data: no. Advection constraint applied: no. Units: umol/l.
