NOAA has renewed a license with GeoEye for
OrbView-2/SeaWiFS MLAC data for research and
education to continue coverage from June 2010 until Feb 2011.
This license includes the contiguous US and adjacent waters.

Since Dec 2004, NOAA has been acquiring this high resolution data set
from GeoEye for stations that cover the contiguous US. The data set is
distributed through the NASA Ocean Color program to assure that it
is seamless with the SeaWiFS data sets obtained by NASA prior to that time.

Our congratulations to the GeoEye team for the successful orbit modification
of the OrbView-2.
