Summary
Abstract: SeaBASS serves as the official in situ data repository for the NASA Ocean
Biology Processing Group (OBPG), which maintains responsibility for all NASA
ocean color and sea surface temperature satellite data processing and
validation. These radiometric and biogeophysical data facilitate the
bio-optical algorithm development and satellite data product validation
activities conducted by the OBPG ... View entire text

Access Constraints Following the NASA Earth Science Data and Information Policy, all SeaBASS data
are publicly available for research and educational use. Registration is
required, but only as a means for the Administrators to contact data users (in
the event of updates to datasets, for example). Data collected prior to 1
January 2000 have been released to the NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center
and are available via http://data.nodc.noaa.gov/accession/0000632 .
Use Constraints SeaBASS data are for research and educational use only, and are not to be
redistributed. All researchers incorporating SeaBASS data into their research
are expected to acknowledge NASA, SeaBASS, and the original data
contributor(s). Users of data are encouraged to discuss relevant findings with
the data provider(s) early in their research. Users are required to give all
data provider(s) a copy of any manuscript resulting from use of their data
prior to the initial submission for publication, thus giving the data
provider(s) an opportunity to comment on the paper. For three years following
data collection, the data provider(s) shall have the right to be named as
co-author(s).
