EOSDIS Data News: March 23, 2018


NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) published the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation National Mosaic and Multi-Sensor QPE (NMQ) System Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) dataset. This dataset consists of six different data products: precipitation rate, hourly rainfall accumulation, daily rainfall accumulation, hybrid scan reflectivity, three-dimensional reflectivity, and vertically integrated liquid content estimates. These data products were created using the NOAA NMQ System which ingests Weather Surveillance Radar 88 Doppler (WSR-88D) radar data, Rapid Update Cycle (RUC) model analysis fields, and Hydrometeorological Automated Data Systems (HADS) gauge data. The files provided in this dataset are from system output during the GPM IPHEx field campaign that occurred in the Southern Appalachians, spanning into the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina. These data are available in ASCII and netCDF-4 formats for dates between April 30 and June 16, 2014.


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) would like to announce a change to data access for the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Digital Elevation Model, Version 1. Data access is now solely through our primary archive at: https://n5eil01u.ecs.nsidc.org/MEASURES/NSIDC-0645.001/. 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 25 July 2017 to the dataset IceBridge ATM L1B Elevation and Return Strength, Version 2.

NSIDC DAAC has published data through 25 July 2017 for the dataset IceBridge Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) L2 Icessn Elevation, Slope, and Roughness, Version 2.


On 12 March, NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) completed a beta release of the India Village-Level Geospatial Socio-Economic Data Set: 1991, 2001, a compilation of the finest level of administrative boundaries in India (village/town-level) and over 200 socio-economic variables collected during the Indian Census in 1991 and 2001. This dataset was developed by digitizing village/town level boundaries from the official analog maps published by the Survey of India for 2001. This dataset also utilized tabular data for 1991 and 2001 from the Primary Census Abstract (PCA) and Village Directory (VD) data series of the Indian census. The data are in Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) 44N projection and are distributed primarily as shapefiles. Separate files are provided for each of the 28 states (number of states during 1991 and 2001 census) and combined Union Territories for 1991 and 2001.
