Short summary
The paper is a contribution to the study of phytoplankton pigment climatology from satellite ocean-color observations in the Senegalo–Mauritanian upwelling, which is a very productive region where in situ observations are lacking. We processed the satellite data with an efficient new neural network classifier. We were able to provide the climatological cycle of diatoms. This study may have an economic impact on fisheries thanks to better knowledge of phytoplankton dynamics.
