NSIDC DAAC

NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) has published the dataset SnowEx17 Ground Penetrating Radar Raw. This dataset contains the raw and unprocessed results of a ground penetrating radar survey conducted as part of the 2017 SnowEx campaign. Data were collected between 08 February 2017 and 25 February 2017 at Grand Mesa, Colorado.

The SMAP Data System (SDS) has finished reprocessing the new versions of selected SMAP levels 1-4 datasets. The entire temporal coverage is now available at the NSIDC DAAC for each of the following datasets:

NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) DAAC published the Atmospheric Tomography Mission dataset, (ATom): Aircraft Flight Track and Navigational Data. This dataset provides flight track and aircraft navigation data from the NASA ATom. Flight track information is available for the four ATom campaigns. Each ATom campaign consists of multiple individual flights and flight navigational information is recorded in 10-second intervals. Data available for each flight includes research flight number, date, and start and stop time of each 10-second interval. In addition, latitude, longitude, altitude, pressure and temperature is included at each 10-second interval. NASA's ATom campaign deploys an extensive gas and aerosol payload on the NASA DC-8 aircraft for systematic, global-scale sampling of the atmosphere, profiling continuously from 0.2 to 12 km altitude. ATom establishes a single, contiguous, global-scale dataset. One intended use of this flight track data is to facilitate to mapping model results from global models onto the precise ATom flight tracks for comparison.
