SST Transition complete for MODIS /AQUA

We are happy to announce that the complete MODIS/AQUAdata set (11 micron day, 11 micron night, 4 micron night,July 2002 - present) has been reprocessed as part ofthe transition of support for SST processing, archiveand distribution and is now available via the OceanColorwebsite through updated Level 1 and 2 and Level 3 Browsers.Processing details can be found online at:http://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/DOCS/modis_sst/This transition is the result of extensive discussionsbetween NASA Headquarters, the Goddard Ocean BiologyProcessing Group (OBPG), the Goddard GES DAAC, NOAAand MODAPS, the JPL Physical Oceanography DAAC, and theUniversity of Miami/RSMAS group to develop a strategy totransition the responsibility for the official processingof MODIS SST (AQUA and TERRA) from MODAPS to OBPG.The agreement has been structured to maintain the highquality SST fields that currently result from MODISobservations and to enhance the fields to support theGODAE High Resolution SST Pilot Project.The complete Level-2 archive is now available with thelevel-3 data products being made available initially viaour web and ftp sites and then shortly via the JPL PO.DAACPOET and the GES DAAC Giovanni interfaces.Please excuse any bumps in the road that youmay experience during this transition andplease feel free to use the OceanColor forum: https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/forum/ ... l?tid=3870 ask questions and provide comments.

With our very best regards,

The Ocean Biology Processing Group
