DAAC is an acronym for "Distributed Active Archive Center," and PO.DAAC is the acronym for Physical Oceanography DAAC. As components of the Earth Observing System (EOS) Data and Information System (EOSDIS), DAACs are institutions that generate EOS standard products and carry out NASA's responsibilities for data archive, distribution, and management. Many of these sites also carry products that pre-date EOS.
