Upcoming changes to user registration for services and data from the oceancolor web

Folks,                                                                                                      
We want to let all the users of the services and data provided via the OceanColor website know that in the very near future, we will be finalizing our efforts to consolidate ALL the various registration functions into a  single account that will grant access to the ocean color forum, data ordering and direct data download including access to data from all non-NASA missions that we support (MERIS, GOCI, OLCI, etc), near real-time subscriptions and SeaBASS. All data will still be available without restriction but we are                                aligning our procedures to not only simplify the registration procedure for the variety of data and services that we provide but also, to conform to the NASA policy that requires registration with the Earth Observing System Data and Information System for user access to all data products and services that                            access data.                                                                                                                                                 To register, all users will need to create an account via Earthdata Login even if you have registered for an  Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) user account.                                                                                    For those users who have already created accounts via Earthdata Login, you will not need to reregister but you may be prompted to authorize a particular application/function/service on our website if you have not used it before.When that occurs, you will be redirected to the Earthdata Login page and asked                      to authorize that service and then once you agree, you will be automatically redirected back to our website to resume your session.                                                                                                                                 This notice is to alert you to this upcoming change and we will post additional reminders as the date of the transition gets closer and as further details are available.  Feel free to register for an account now if you don't already have one so that you will be all ready when transition takes place.                                            Thanks for your support and understanding and we sincerely believe that this should make your access to all the data and services that we provide even more efficient and productive.                                                    With our best regards on behalf of all the members of the Ocean Biology Processing Group, gene
