TH25B:
PO.DAAC Today and Tomorrow: Current and Future Data Tools and Services

Session ID#: 91970

Session Description:
The Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) is NASA’s data center for physical oceanographic data, which includes winds, ocean surface topography, salinity, sea surface temperature, gravity, ocean circulation and more. This town hall will provide an overview of two main topics, the current PO.DAAC and the future PO.DAAC on the cloud. PO.DAAC’s current data holdings and the tools and services offered to discover, visualize, subset and obtain these data will be discussed. In preparation for a new satellite mission, Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT), PO.DAAC is also getting ready to meet the needs and requirements of a new user community, namely hydrology, as we migrate our information systems to the cloud to handle the 20 TB ingress of data per day. Tools and services will be migrated to the cloud to ensure users have at least the same functionality and user experience, if not better. New functionalities are being developed to support analysis of large data, and new, innovative science and applications. Those functionalities and services will be discussed, along with what datasets users can initially find on the cloud, which will remain free and open to discover and access.
