Science System Description

NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) employs a federated architecture composed of independent components that can be integrated into the system as needed.

The components of the system are broken down into a number of capabilities and services:

EOSDIS Standard Products

EOSDIS standard products, extracted from the Common Metadata Repository (CMR), result from peer-reviewed and competitively awarded science algorithms (and associated observing instruments). The standard products consist of geophysical measurements from various types of instruments. Three lists, current as of August 5, 2020 are available on the EOSDIS Standard Products page.

EOSDIS Handbook

The EOSDIS system support team provides assistance for the software development cycle of the components across EOSDIS. Specific information regarding the environments is available to integrators during the integration process.
