Announcing the NASA Earthdata Webinar “Discover NASA’s Ocean Color Data and
Services at the OB.DAAC”
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive
Center (OB.DAAC) provides the global research community almost 4 Petabytes (PB)
of satellite remote sensing data from a large number of operational, legacy,
and international missions. This archive spans nearly 40 years of satellite
measurements of ocean color, sea surface temperature, and sea surface salinity.
The OB.DAAC also maintains SeaBASS, a publicly shared archive of in situ
oceanographic and atmospheric data collected from ship-borne marine surveys,
scientific buoys, and autonomous robotic “gliders”. These data can be
manipulated with the freely available “SeaDAS” software package which enables
the processing, display, and analysis of ocean color and other applicable
satellite remote sensing earth science data.
Event: Discover NASA’s Ocean Color Data and Services at the OB.DAAC
When: Wednesday 22 March 2017, 02:00 PM – 03:00 PM
Time Zone: Eastern Daylight Savings Time (UTC/GMT-4)
Robert Lossing is a satellite remote sensing oceanographer at the NASA Goddard
Space Flight Center’s Ocean Biology Processing Group. He works on the
development and implementation of new and improved algorithms for producing
Level 2 and Level 3 ocean color data products from satellite remote sensing
radiometry (visible to short-wave infrared); implementing these algorithms in
processing software; evaluating and validating the performance of the
algorithms; developing methodologies to assess and correct for instrumental
artifacts in derived ocean color products; and documenting work through
publications and presentations at meetings and conferences.
