Animation showing the survey track and measurement data of Saildrone track 1036 deployed during the Arctic field campaign from 15 May 2019 to 11 October 2019. Here we see time series of surface salinity and temperature measurements in relation to satellite SSS and SST respectively.  The animation also maps the movement of the saildrone, with colors representing collocated satellite SSS and SST along-track. The dataset can be accessed from the PO.DAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/SAILDRONE_ARCTIC (DOI: 10.5067/SDRON-NOPP0)

Why is the NASA Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) and the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) moving to the cloud? This webinar, addresses your burning questions about the move to the cloud, what it means for the data, services, and resources PO.DAAC provides, and what it means for the data user community. You will learn about this paradigm shift, in the context of a NASA EOSDIS DAAC, what tools and services, as well as data, are anticipated to be cloud-based shortly, and learn about other PO.DAAC efforts to expand data accessibility and usability, including consideration for interoperability and making data more GIS-ready.

Animation of the weekly (8day) daytime spatially gridded (L3) global sea surface skin temperature (SST) at 4.63 km spatial resolution from the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard the Terra satellite. The black pixels indicate missing data due to cloud during that 8day period . The dataset was produced by the NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) with science algorithm developed by Peter Minnett and his team at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS).
