Satellite Oceanography at NODC

 

***ANNOUNCEMENT January 2013: NODC releases AVHRR Pathfinder Version 5.2 for the year 2011***

***

Welcome to the Satellite Oceanography Group at the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The primary goal of the NODC satellite group is to provide scientific stewardship of satellite-derived oceanographic datasets and analyses. The group pursues this goal by developing consistently-processed, satellite-based climate data records and applying them to various scientific problems. The satellite group at NODC focuses on three of the key functions of satellite data stewardship: (1) Generating authoritative long-term records through satellite data reprocessing efforts; (2) Using those climate data records to place the current state of the environment in its proper historical perspective; and (3) Ensuring the data are properly archived and easily accessed by a wide range of users.

If you know what you are looking for already, follow these links to access our Pathfinder, GHRSST and Jason-2/OSTM products (and other datasets managed by NODC, like Argo floats, the World Ocean Atlas, and more!) via http, ftp, OPeNDAP or THREDDS:
