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 open-source tool created by NASA’s Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) facilitates time-series analysis of such phenomena as flooding events, deforestation, or glacier retreat using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The Radiometrically Terrain Corrected (RTC) Stacking Tool uses ASF DAAC’s Hybrid Pluggable Processing Pipeline (HyP3, pronounced “hype”) system to create a stack of images from a set of Sentinel-1 RTC products. Once a stack of imagery products is created, the RTC Stacking Tool allows the user to perform sub-setting, resampling, grouping, filtering, and culling on the stack. The final products are a stack of processed GeoTIFF images and an animated GIF of the stack.

Three new global land surface datasets recently added to NASA’s Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) collection will aid not only in hydrologic, land surface process, and climate analysis, but also provide support for detecting areas susceptible to famine and drought. The release of the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Land Data Assimilation System (FLDAS) Version 001 global monthly datasets from the Noah Version 3.6.1 Land Surface Model (LSM) includes three new datasets: global monthly data, global monthly climatology data, and global monthly anomaly data.

A new data collection distributed by NASA’s Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) provides insight into the vulnerability of West Africa’s coastline to climate stresses. The 16 datasets comprising the West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping data collection are part of a larger study looking at the economic, social, and natural systems in West Africa that will be exposed to future sea-level rise, storm surge, and riparian floods.
