Atmosphere Data at EOSDIS
Atmosphere discipline data sets focus primarily on characterizing the Earth’s troposphere and stratosphere. Within those layers occur many geophysical processes involving clouds, aerosols, precipitation, lightning, chemistry, temperature, radiation balance, and dynamics. Interactions of the atmosphere with land and ocean surfaces, and with solar radiation also fall within this discipline. NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) hold over 2,700 atmosphere data sets, some of which overlap other disciplines, such as Land and Ocean. The primary DAACs specializing in atmospheric products are ASDC, GES DISC and LAADS DAAC. Several other DAACs also hold atmospheric data as they relate to their respective disciplines. Near real-time data for Atmosphere applications can be found at Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE).
