Ocean Biology DAAC (OB.DAAC) serves as the DAAC for satellite ocean biology data produced or collected under EOSDIS including those from historical missions and partner space organizations. Ocean color data are important in studying the biology and hydrology of coastal zones, changes in the diversity and geographical distribution of coastal marine habitats, biogeochemical fluxes and their influence in Earth’s oceans and climate over time, and finally the impact of climate and environmental variability and change on ocean ecosystems and the biodiversity they support.
