Ocean Biology

Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC)

  • Managed by NASA's Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG), OB.DAAC is responsible for archiving satellite ocean biology data produced or collected under NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS). OB.DAAC's holdings include NRT data from both NASA and partner space organizations. Get NRT data from OB.DAAC

Phyisical Oceanography

Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC)

  • Visualize and download NRT data for ocean and climate research from the PO.DAAC web portal.

Direct Readout Laboratory (DRL)

Utilize the Direct Readout Laboratory (DRL), which is a technology and information conduit for the Direct Broadcast (DB) community. The DRL acts as an intermediary between missions and DB community members that are not directly involved in the missions. To develop these technologies, the DRL ensures bidirectional communication between missions and the entire DB community.
