EOSDIS Data News: March 9, 2018


NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published all four of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Next Generation Weather Radar system (NEXRAD) Level III Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) datasets. The purpose of the IFloodS campaign was to help support the ground validation of the GPM. NEXRAD Level-II data were previously published in 2017. This dataset, consisting of two Level-III NEXRAD precipitation products, were gathered from Unidata for four NEXRAD stations in the vicinity of the IFloodS campaign during March 29, 2013 through June 18, 2013. These datasets contain digital instantaneous precipitation rate (DPR) and storm total accumulation estimates (DTA) in NIDS binary format files. For a complete archive of data from each station beyond the IFloodS time period, please utilize the NOAA archives at Amazon Web Services and Open Common Consortium. See the NOAA website at https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/data-access/radar-data/noaa-big-data-project for more information.


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) has published data through the end of 2017 for the dataset Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC) Daily Snow Depth Analysis Data.


NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC) published the Vegetation Collection dataset Forest Inventories at Burned and Unburned Tropical Forest Sites, Acre, Brazil, 2014. This dataset provides measurements for diameter at breast height (DBH) and species identification of trees for inventories taken at five tropical forest sites in Acre state, Brazil, in the southwestern Amazon region. The sites included one in a forest reserve (Reserva Bonal) and four within forest fragments situated on private property. The inventory sites included forests burned in 2005 and 2010 and also unburned forests. Surveys were conducted in July and August 2014.


NASA's Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC) Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) PI-produced JPL Level 3 monthly and 8-day mapped Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) product, based on the Combined Active-Passive (CAP) retrieval algorithm, was operationally re-ingested after the Data Provider corrected a metadata issue associated with fill values.
