Ocean Biology Processing Group

Initiative Type: Infrastructures

Belém Statement Area: Climate Variability, Ocean Observation

Initiative Location: United States of America

Time Frame: Ongoing


NASA's Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) supports the collection, processing, calibration, validation, archive and distribution of ocean-related products from a number of missions which are supported within the framework and facilities of the NASA Ocean Data Processing System (ODPS) which has been successfully supporting operational, satellite-based remote-sensing missions since 1996. The group's capabilities continue to evolve and expand to meet the demands and challenges of future missions. The Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) serves as the Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) for all Ocean Biology (OB) data produced or collected under NASA?s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS). This website thus serves as the primary data access portal to the NASA OB.DAAC.
