Abstract: Data assembly and processing centers are essential elements of the operational oceanography infrastructure. They provide data and products needed by modeling and data assimilation systems; they also provide products directly useable for applications. The paper discusses the role and functions of the data centers for operational oceanography. It describes some of the main data assembly centers (Argo and in-situ data, altimetry, sea surface temperature) developed during GODAE. An overview of other data centers (wind and fluxes, ocean colour, sea ice) is also given. Major progresses have been achieved over the past 10 years to validate, intercalibrate and merge altimeter data from multiple satellites.
