Data

Access near real-time products from the MODIS, OMI, AIRS, and MLS instruments in less than 3 hours from observation from LANCE.

LANCE provided NRT data from AMSR-E until the instrument stopped spinning on 4th October 2011. AMSR-E is currently not producing any data. AMSR2 information

Please read the disclaimer for more information about using the data.

Use the table below to determine if available products meet latency (time between observation and availability to users) requirements in general or select the instrument for more on the products, latencies and associated information.

If data latency is not a primary concern, please consider using science quality products. Science products are created using the best available ancillary, calibration and ephemeris information. Science quality products are an internally consistent, well-calibrated record of the Earth’s geophysical properties to support science.
