Our datasets are provided through the NASA Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) project. PO.DAAC is one of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), part of the ESDIS project. NASA data are not copyrighted; however, when you publish our data or results derived therefrom, we request that you include an acknowledgment within the text of the publication and reference list.
References to datasets should have enough detail to provide readers of your publication the ability to obtain the datasets and conduct their own studies based on your work. See the examples below. The examples include datasets identifiable with a unique identifier such as Digital Object Identifier (DOI) as well as other types of datasets, images or webpages that are relevant for referencing. Please note that the dataset information pages or DOI landing pages for specific datasets provide the citation formats that you may use directly.
