EOSDIS Data News: March 16, 2018


NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) published the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Campaign Reports Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) dataset. This dataset consists of flight reports, weather forecasts, instrument reports, scientist summaries, and plan-of-day reports collected during the GPM OLYMPEX field campaign that occurred during the intense operating period of November 2015 to February 2016. OLYMPEX field campaign measurements support validation and refinement of GPM satellite measurements and algorithms. Some files are located within tarred files containing reports, plots and photos.


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) has published new 2017 to three Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity datasets.

NSIDC DAAC would like to announce a change to data access for the MEaSUREs Annual Antarctic Ice Velocity Maps 2005-2017, Version 1. Data access is now solely through our primary archive at: https://n5eil01u.ecs.nsidc.org/MEASURES/NSIDC-0720.001/. File level spatial and temporal metadata have been added to aid in searching and ordering the data through Earthdata Search.

NSIDC DAAC has published data through 29 November 2017 to the dataset IceBridge POS/AV L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data, Version 1.


NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) completed release of two datasets based on the Global Fire Emissions Data v.4 (GFED4) on 23 February, the Global Fire Emissions Indicators, Country-Level Tabular Data, v1 (1997-2015) and the Global Fire Emissions Indicators, Grids, v1 (1997-2015). The Country-Level Tabular Data summarize the data by country and by year, whereas the grids provide the data in GeoTIFF as an alternative to the NetCDF5. The data are derived from Global Fire Emissions Database version 4 (GFED4), which is a modeled product based on burned area data from the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS) (pre-2001) and MODIS sensors (post-2001).
