NASA Earthdata Webinar "Bio-Optical in situ Data Discovery and Access with SeaBASS"

Announcing the NASA Earthdata Webinar "Bio-Optical in situ Data  Discovery and Access with SeaBASS"            SeaBASS, which stands for the SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System, is NASA’s data archive for in situ oceanographic and atmospheric datasetsmaintained by the Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC) at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. In addition to serving as a datarepository, SeaBASS operates as a ground-truth, satellite validation andcomparison system in support of NASA’s satellite ocean color missions, whichtake measurements of Earth's ocean and atmosphere.The SeaBASS archive hosts an in-situ-to-satellite validation match-up system, comparing a variety of oceanic and atmospheric parameters, includingchlorophyll-a, remote sensing reflectance, absorption, backscatter, and attenuation coefficients, aerosol optical thickness, and more. While theSeaBASS archive and validation system were initially built for the SeaWiFS satellite instrument, launched in 1997, SeaBASS has since continued to serveNASA-supported follow-on ocean-color satellite missions, including MODIS Aquaand Terra, MERIS, and the joint NOAA/NASA Suomi-NPP VIIRS. This webinar will focus on how SeaBASS can be leveraged for data search, discovery, and access, and will demonstrate how SeaBASS supports NASA’s oceancolor satellite products and the broader scientific community through data management and value-added post-processing features of the SeaBASS tool suite.The webinar will also present a brief overview of satellite ocean color remote sensing concepts that are relevant to how the SeaBASS bio-optical archive andvalidation system functions. ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????                                                    Event: Bio-Optical in situ Data Discovery and Access with SeaBASS When: Wednesday 24 January 2018, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time (UTC/GMT-5)Speaker:                                                        Joel Scott serves as a research scientist for NASA’s Ocean Ecology Lab and a data manager for NASA’s SeaBASS data repository under the Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC). Joel has worked in satellite remote sensing, studying air-sea interaction, for over nine years and manages                  over 3,900 bio-optical datasets in the SeaBASS repository. Joel’s work for NASA’s Ocean Ecology Lab involves maintaining format and metadata standards for diverse in situ ocean data, preserving data protocol and collection documentation, and supporting the ocean color research community with in situ                          algorithm development and validation datasets. Joel also develops analytical software tools in Python, Perl, and MATLAB for validating NASA’s ocean color satellite products and algorithms.
