MODIS direct broadcast at Oregon State University and IPOPP
Our history

We have been collecting and processing direct broadcast oceanic satellite data at Oregon State University since early 2001.  Our large satellite dish tracks satellites as they fly overhead. We then use NASA software to process the data into scientific products.  Due to the complexity of the software packages, direct broadcast stations tended to only focus on a single field (land, atmosphere, or ocean).  As our team consists of oceanographers, we focused on ocean products like fluorescence and sea surface temperature.  These oceanic data and images can be accessed from our OSU MODIS direct broadcast website. However, this focus on the ocean was to the detriment of those requiring land or atmospheric data.  This is about to change ...

Our future .... IPOPP!

A dedicated team at NASA has produced a new software package for processing satellite data called IPOPP (International Polar Orbiter Processing Package).  It is very simple to use, and produces not only the same ocean products as we created before, but also land and atmospheric products such as Active Fires and Aerosols.  It was designed in preparation for the upcoming launch of a new satellite, NPP (NPOESS Preparatory Project).  However, it can also process MODIS data from the current TERRA and AQUA satellites.  As an IPOPP alpha test site, we have this software running in real-time.  Data and images output from IPOPP can be accessed using the links to the left.
