The CDDIS: Supporting Scientific Analysis for 25+ Years Using Space Geodesy Data and Products

Building 3 Auditorium - 11:00 AM
(Coffee at 10:30 AM)
The Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS) has supported the archive and distribution of geodetic data products acquired by NASA as well as national and international programs since 1982. The CDDIS provides easy, timely, and reliable access to a variety of data sets, products, and information about these data. These measurements are obtained from a global network of nearly 650 instruments at more than 400 distinct sites. The CDDIS data system and its archive have become increasingly important to many national and international science communities, particularly several of the operational services within the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and its observing system the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS). Investigations resulting from the data and products available through the CDDIS support research in many aspects of Earth system science and global change. The requirements of analysts have evolved since the start of the CDDIS; the specialized nature of the system accommodates the enhancements required to support diverse data sets and user needs. This talk will discuss the CDDIS, including background information about the system and its user communities, archive contents, and future plans.
Carey graduated from Western Maryland College in 1979 with a B.A. in Mathematics. She has worked in information technology at NASA GSFC since 1981, supporting many national and international programs such as NASA's Crustal Dynamics Project, the IAG, and the EOSDIS.
