The MODIS sea surface temperature (SST) data products which have been previously archived at the Goddard Earth Sciences Distributed Active Archive Center have now been replaced with reprocessed SST data products available from the Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG), http://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/. The reprocessed MODIS SST data products represent a significant improvement in data quality over the previous product. As of June 14th, GES DAAC will no longer have previous versions of MODIS SST data available for distribution. Inquiries about data quality and data availability should now be directed to the OBPG.
"Exploiting the Capabilities of NASA's Giovanni System for Oceanographic Education" was given as a keynote presentation for the Education and Training session at the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) 2007 Annual Symposium. At the subsequent EARSeL Coastal Zone Workshop, the poster "Application of NASA Giovanni to Coastal Zone Remote Sensing Research" was presented. This poster highlighted a multi-parameter analysis of the Mediterranean Sea, including interesting features observed in the GSM backscatter coefficient and dissolved/detrital absorption coefficient.
Note that the GES DISC Forum system is no longer available.Giovanni ocean color questions, and general questions, can be sent directly to the GES DISC Help email address.
