Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC)
Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center
The GES DISC is located within the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. It provides access to a wide range of global climate data, concentrated primarily in the areas of atmospheric composition, atmospheric dynamics, global precipitation, and solar irradiance. The GES DISC supports data from many heritage and EOS missions including Aqua, Aura, Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE), Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), UARS, and Earth Probe (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometers - TOMS). The GES DISC also provides data subsetting, exploration, visualization, and access services.
