Ocean Color and SST Processing History

The OBPG performs periodic reprocessings of the distributed data products from each supported mission when advances in algorithms or sensor calibration knowledge can be shown to significantly improve product quality or utility. These reprocessing events may span all missions (e.g., to incorporate refinements to common algorithms), or just one mission (e.g., to correct for error in sensor calibration). Details on the history, changes, and impact of each reprocessing are provided in the links below.

Visit the Product Status & Algorithm Documentation page for dataset descriptions and operational status of misison products.
