Ocean Data Processing System (ODPS) SIPS
The ODPS SIPS, located at NASA's Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC) on NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, produces ocean color and sea surface temperature data products from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensors on NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites. The ODPS SIPS allows users to visually search/browse the ocean color data archive for many parameters and time periods and directly download and/or order the data and images directly from the ODPS SIPS. Users can also create time series plots of selected SeaWiFS, MODIS and OCTS Standard Mapped Images for a set of selected regions or the entire globe. The sea surface temperature products are provided to NASA's Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC) for archiving and distribution. The other products are archived at OB.DAAC, which is collocated with the ODPS SIPS.

The ESDIS Project supports data processing by providing Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPS). Most of the EOS standard products are produced at facilities under the direct control of the instrument Principal Investigators/Team Leaders (PIs/TLs) or their designees. The SIPS are geographically distributed across the United States and are generally, but not necessarily, collocated with the PIs/TLs’ Scientific Computing Facilities (SCFs). Products produced at the SIPS using investigator-provided systems and software are sent to appropriate DAACs for archival and distribution. Level 0 Data Products and Ancillary Data that begin the processing sequence are stored at the DAACs and retrieved by the SIPS.
