EOSDIS Data News: May 18, 2018


NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) published the Global Precipitation Measurement Ground Validation (GPM-GV) National Mosaic and Multi-Sensor QPE (NMQ) System Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) dataset which contains quality control products, real-time rain rate estimates, hourly precipitation rate estimates, and three-dimensional merged radar reflectivity products. These data products are also referred to as Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor Precipitation Reanalysis for Satellite Validation (MRMS) product and 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 the NMQ system output obtained during the GPM IFloodS field campaign that occurred throughout Iowa during April 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013. The data files are available in ASCII, netCDF-4, and binary formats.


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) has published Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS) data collected as part of NASA's Terrestrial Ecology Program campaign, the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE). The datasets contain laser altimetry return energy waveforms and surface elevation over Alaska and Western Canada from 29 June to 17 July 2017.
