Some of the help pages internal to SeaDAS 7.5.2 have not yet been revised to match the current version so there can be
some wording discrepancies as well as feature description differences. We also produce video help
tutorials (https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/tutorial). In addition, we regularly respond to SeaDAS issues
on the our user forum
(https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/forum/oceancolor/forum_show.pl). Questions posted on
the forum help aid us in determining aspects of SeaDAS which may benefit by refinement, as well as give us ideas
for topics to be used in future tutorial videos. Also note that these internal help pages are alos made available at
If you already have SeaDAS version 7 or higher installed:
In your home directory there is a directory titled '.seadas'. This contains version-specific preferences
and defaults. This directory also contains any custom color palettes and rgb-profiles which you may have
created. Because of this, a seadas installation will automically move and rename the previous '.seadas'
directory putting it in your home directory. When seadas is launched and does not find this '.seadas'
directory, it will automically create this directory and initialize it with the package settings and defaults.
You can then manually copy any of your custom color palettes and rgb-profiles from the backed up copy
of your previous version's '.seadas' directory over into the '.seadas' directory.
