The Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) is the archive, distribution, and user/science services center for NASA's satellite oceanographic data. PO.DAAC data holdings are focused on measurements related to ocean surface topography, ocean winds, ocean temperature, gravity, ocean currents and circulation, and salinity.   During the past year, PO.DAAC has deployed a new web portal to facilitate data discovery and user interactions, as well as several new tools and services for data access and visualization.  This workshop will showcase these new capabilities through an interactive demonstration, providing users with an outlet to learn how to successfully navigate and use these services for scientific applications.  PO.DAAC scientists and developers will be on hand to also answer general questions related to PO.DAAC/NASA data and services.
