The Oregon and Washington region encompasses shelf and ocean environments and to the north in Canadian waters includes the Sanach Inlet. Much work has been done by Canadian scientists at IOS (Gower) in this area comparing standard MERIS chlorophyll algorithms with the Maximum Chlorophyll Index (MCI) and Fluorescence Line Height (FLH) (Gower and King, 2009).
