1 UWG 2013 Meeting Science Direction Discussion

2 Thrusts Invigorate outreach Deploy DM infrastructure Modernize data access tools Enhance web presence Integrate the data system Create science-focused value- added products & services

3 Data Management & Stewardship Preserve NASA’s data for the benefit of future generations Data Access Provide intuitive services to discover, select, extract and utilize data Science Information Services Provide a knowledgebase to help a broad user community understand and interpret satellite ocean data and related information PO.DAAC Functional Areas

4 PO.DAAC Science Roadmap Tasked to create a near-term ( 5 years) science roadmap for PO.DAAC. For a roadmap to be created, the following questions need to be addressed:  What are the directions of the Space Geodesy, Ocean Surface Topography, Sea Surface Temperature, Salinity, and Ocean Winds programs, and what challenges are these programs facing or are foreseen to face in the future?  How can PO.DAAC align to support these activities and address the challenges to benefit users?
