ACCESS NASA EARTH SCIENCE DATA
NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
A new COVID-19 Data Pathfinder provides links to datasets and tools that can be used to research the potential environmental impacts from altered human behavior patterns, study the possibility of seasonal trends in virus transmission, and evaluate water availability. The Data Pathfinders provide direct links to commonly-used datasets across NASA’s Earth science data collections and information about datasets, services, and commonly used tools that enable data visualization, provide options for subsetting the data, and highlight capabilities for saving data into different file formats. https://go.nasa.gov/2Z2DTz9
NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) GLacier and Land Ice Surface Topography Interferometer Airborne (GLISTIN-A) Glacial Elevations Level 3 (L3) Version 1 dataset has been released at the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC). This dataset includes 50m horizontal resolution gridded Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) of Greenland Ice Sheet outlet glaciers collected during 2016 to 2019 using GLISTIN-A radar measured surface elevations around the periphery of the Greenland Ice Sheet using Ka-Band (8.4 mm wavelength) single-pass interferometry.

A new dataset from NASA's Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) provides annual maps of live aboveground tree biomass (Mg/ha) for pinyon-juniper forests across the Great Basin of the Western USA for the years 2000-2016 at a spatial resolution of 30 meters. The estimates of biomass were based on a linear relationship with pinyon-juniper canopy cover and crown-based allometrics developed from field data in Nevada and Idaho. The annual estimates were then calibrated to the Forest Inventory and Analysis program estimates and corrections were applied. This dataset is archived and distributed at NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC). Discover and access data: https://doi.org/10.3334/ORNLDAAC/1755

Global Hackathon to use Earth Observing Data to Address COVID-19 Challenges
The NASA Space Apps COVID-19 Challenge invites global teams to use Earth observing data to find solutions to COVID-19 challenges over a 48-hour virtual hackathon May 30 to 31.
Sensing Invasive Species From Space
Invasive species cost the U.S. economy approximately $120 billion a year and disrupt the dynamics of ecosystems. Researchers are increasingly using remote sensing to map where invasive species are and where they could spread in order to minimize their damage.
Data Chat: Katie Baynes
For NASA EOSDIS System Architect Katie Baynes, having NASA Earth observing data in the commercial cloud will foster not only a new community of data users, but also new communal ways of using these data.
New Dataset of Greenland Ice Sheet DEMs Available at NASA’s PO.DAAC
A dataset with digital elevation models (DEMs) of the Greenland Ice Sheet is the latest release from NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) mission.
User Profile: Dr. Faisal Hossain
For the people of Asia and Southeast Asia, water is integral to their livelihood. Dr. Hossain uses NASA Earth observing data to improve water management and accelerate economic development in these regions.
NASA SEDAC Application Puts Current Global COVID-19 Data at your Fingertips
