Upcoming NASA Earthdata Webinar "Goodbye FTP, New Ways to Access NASA's Physical Oceanography Data at PO.DAAC" on Wednesday, October 24th!

NASA is in the process of deprecating the use of the FTP protocol for data and information access. In line with these efforts, the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) is pleased to offer Drive as a robust FTP alternative for browsing and retrieving physical oceanography data at PO.DAAC (

This data discovery and data access capability offers file navigation and download through an interface served directly to your browser, and with a familiar look and feel. In addition, users can access data using a command line, enabling easily scripted interactions.

During this webinar, we will provide a demonstration of how to use Drive, and show you how to navigate other data access services such as Web services and OPeNDAP. This webinar will highlight currently available PO.DAAC services to enable migration from FTP to https.
