The latest version (SeaDAS 7.5.1) is the result of a collaboration with the developers of ESA's BEAM software package. The core visualization package for SeaDAS 7 is based on the BEAM framework, with extensions that provide the functionality provided by previous versions of SeaDAS.
SeaDAS is a comprehensive software package for the processing, display, analysis, and quality control of ocean color data. While the primary focus of SeaDAS is ocean color data, it is applicable to many satellite-based earth science data analyses. Originally developed to support the SeaWiFS mission, it now supports most U.S. and international ocean color missions.
