AMSR-E/AMSR2

The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-E/Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-2 (AMSR-E/AMSR2) senses microwave radiation aboard the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Global Change Observation Mission – Water 1 (GCOM-W1) satellite.

Arctic Cyclone

An Arctic cyclone exploded in intensity as it entered the Beaufort Sea causing high winds to spread out sea ice. This image displays daily averaged brightness temperatures (TBs) in Kelvin (K). Dark blue color indicates low TBs while white shows higher TBs. TB data are useful for sea ice studies.

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.

An Internship Like No Other

The experience may be different this summer, but almost a dozen interns are helping the ESDIS Project office and EOSDIS DAACs move vital work forward.

User Profile: Dr. Sparkle Malone

Global climate change is leading to shifts in vital ecosystems. Dr. Malone uses Earth observation data to explore how a changing climate impacts ecosystem structure and function.

NASA Ecological Data Made Easy

NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) has developed resources and tools to help researchers easily find, analyze, and visualize ecological data.

Data Chat: Mark McInerney

The technical requirements for moving NASA EOSDIS data into the commercial cloud are enormous. Mark McInerney oversees this effort and helps ensure these data are interoperable with similar data from other agencies.

A Stronger International Resource for Earth Science Data Discovery

Enhancements to NASA’s Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) create an even more powerful international resource for discovering Earth science data.

Webinar: Improving the DAAC User Experience with Cloud-based Capabilities

Event Date: July 23, 2020

This presentation will discuss NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) activities to transition the user experience to the cloud, how these efforts are being applied (e.g., tools, visualizations, and analysis), and how this supports users.

Explore NASA Earth Science Virtually at Summer Conferences

Conference attendees can virtually interact with representatives from NASA’s ESDS Program, ESDIS Project, and EOSDIS DAACs to learn more about NASA Earth observing data, services, and products.

Using Satellites to Measure the Size and Shape of Mangroves

Researchers use remote sensing to measure mangrove forest extent and tree height to inform sustainable management of these ecosystems.

New Imagery and Functionality Available in NASA Worldview

New VIIRS imagery from NOAA-20 along with new ways to evaluate and select imagery layers make NASA Worldview more useful than ever.
