The saying "all good things must come to an end" rings true as PO.DAAC bids farewell to our amazing summer students, Matthew Hsiao and Alessandro Sanchez.

Matthew Hsiao was involved in a project to assess the feasibility of bringing satellite data into high school curriculum, investigating the relationship between harmful algal blooms and sea surface temperature in the Southern California Bight.

Alessandro Sanchez was involved with reformatting Seasat data into NetCDF file format with CF metadata standards to make it more accessible to the scientific community. Seasat was NASA's first oceanographic mission in 1978 and has important impacts for climate studies.
