Abstract A global pigment database consisting of 35634 pigment suites measured by high performance liquid chro- matography was assembled in support of the MARine Ecosytem DATa (MAREDAT) initiative. These data origi- nate from 136 field surveys within the global ocean, were solicited from investigators and databases, compiled, and then quality controlled. Nearly one quarter of the data originates from the Laboratoire d’Oce ́anographie de Ville- franche (LOV), with an additional 17 % and 19 % stem- ming from the US JGOFS and LTER programs, respec- tively. The MAREDAT pigment database provides high qual- ity measurements of the major taxonomic pigments includ- ing chlorophylls a and b, 19’-butanoyloxyfucoxanthin, 19’- hexanoyloxyfucoxanthin, alloxanthin, divinyl chlorophyll a, fucoxanthin, lutein, peridinin, prasinoxanthin, violaxanthin and zeaxanthin, which may be used in varying combinations to estimate phytoplankton community composition. Quality control measures consisted of flagging samples that had a total chlorophyll a concentration of zero, had fewer than four reported accessory pigments, or exceeded two stan- dard deviations of the log-linear regression of total chloro- phyll a with total accessory pigment concentrations. We an- ticipate the MAREDAT pigment database to be of use in the marine ecology, remote sensing and ecological mod- eling communities, where it will support model valida- tion and advance our global perspective on marine biodi- versity. The original dataset together with quality control flags as well as the gridded MAREDAT pigment data may be downloaded from PANGAEA: 1594/PANGAEA.793246.
