On the Cover: This image is a composite of all Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) data collected during the 7½ years of operation from November 1978 through June 1986. Production of the image required processing over 66,000 individual CZCS scenes (nearly 700 gigabytes of data). Note that some regions of the Pacific Ocean still were not sampled (those in black). Plankton concentrations are low in the central gyres (purple, deep blue), and tend to be higher along coasts (yellow, orange and red). Some of the most notable features in this image are: the clear delineation of the equator through increased plant pigment abundance, the difference between the eastern and western regions of the basin, and the elevated pigment concentrations at higher latitudes and in coastal waters.
