Hurricane Iota

Hurricane Iota strengthened to a Category 5 storm as it approached Central America. This image displays surface precipitation in millimeters per hour. Blue colors indicate lower precipitation rates; red/yellow indicates higher rates. The hurricane is the hook-shaped object near the image center.

AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified Products

The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer Unified products are created by reprocessing Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) data and integrating these with Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer2 (AMSR2) data. This provides a continuous data record from 2002 to the present.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.

Webinar- NASA's Earthdata Forum: Connect to a Growing Body of Expertise

Event Date: November 18, 2020

Join us for an introduction to the Earthdata Forum, a hub for submitting your questions about NASA Earth science data, services, and tools and for finding answers on how to discover and use the data distributed by the DAACs represented on the Earthdata Forum.

Data Chat: Drew Kittel

EOSDIS DAACs will play as key role as EOSDIS data evolve to the commercial cloud. NASA's ESDIS Project Science Operations Office Manager, Drew Kittel, is working to ensure that DAAC services and support are ready.

The Precision Behind Sea Level Rise

Knowing the precise location of a satellite in space is critical for determining sea surface height and, through this, the rate of global mean sea level rise.

Solving the Data Puzzle of Sea Level Rise

The new Sea Level Change Data Pathfinder highlights the diversity of datasets used to piece together the status and drivers of sea level rise.

User Profile: Dr. Brian Barnes

Ocean color data provide key information about ocean health. Dr. Barnes uses these data in his investigations into the health of optically shallow waters.
