EOSDIS Data News - 08/03/2018


NASA's Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) published the dataset TRMM Precipitation Radar V06. This dataset is part of a larger effort that will make the legacy Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) datasets consistent with the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM). Under this effort, TRMM data will become part of the GPM data suite, with GPM algorithms used for reprocessing, and both data format and file naming conventions consistent with those of GPM. Data products in this release:

Also included are GPM_3HSLH_TRMM, GPM_3HSLH_TRMM_DAY, and GPM_3GSLH_TRMM, which do not have specific DOIs assigned yet.


NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) published the GPM Ground Validation Composite Satellite Overpasses OLYMPEX dataset. This dataset provides brightness temperature, precipitation, and total column water vapor estimates from multiple satellite overpasses including DMSP F16-19, GCOM-W1, GPM, MetOp, NOAA, and NPP for the OLYMPEX field campaign. The OLYMPEX field campaign took place between November 2015, and January 2016, with additional ground sampling continuing through February, on the Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. This field campaign provided ground-based validation for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory satellite. Satellite Overpass data files are available from November 1, 2015 thru May 1, 2016 in HDF-5 format.


NASA's Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC) published the Aquarius/SAC-D version 5.0 Level 4 optimally interpolated sea surface salinity dataset. The product covers the entire duration of the Aquarius/SAC-D mission 8/26/2011 to 6/7/2015 and is a 7-day 0.5 degree spatial resolution, near-global coverage dataset. The optimal interpolation (OI) mapping procedure used to create this product corrects for systematic spatial biases in Aquarius SSS data with respect to in-situ near-surface salinity observations and takes into account available statistical information about the signal and noise, specific to the Aquarius instrument.
