The Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) is NASA’s data center responsible for data management and distribution of satellite oceanographic data, as well as providing support for its scientific user base. Part of this support comes as providing data and expanding its data holding and services for those data to accommodate the various user communities. This year PO.DAAC has new versions of gridded sea surface heights and terrestrial water height time series. There are also new missions, GRACE-FO and Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG), at PO.DAAC. To help users know if these data are being used, along with the rest of PO.DAAC’s data holdings, data metrics, based on citations, are now provided on the dataset landing pages. The whole web portal has been redesigned and modernized so information is easier to discover by simplifying the design and improving search results.
