EOSDIS Data News: September 21, 2018

GHRC DAAC

NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) published the Tropical Cyclone Intensity (TCI) Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRAD) dataset. This dataset was created for the TCI field campaign from August 30, 2015 through October 23, 2015. The goal of the TCI field campaign was to improve the prediction of tropical cyclone (TC) intensity and structure change. The specific focus was to have an improved understanding of TC upper-level outflow layer processes and dynamics. These HIRAD data were obtained from the instrument onboard the NASA WB-57 aircraft flow on specific dates during the campaign. The data files include brightness temperature, rain rate, wind speed, and sea surface temperature estimates in netCDF-3 format, with corresponding browse imagery in PNG format.

NSIDC DAAC

NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) has published the dataset IceBridge Narrow Swath ATM Level 1B (L1B) Elevation and Return Strength with Waveforms. This dataset contains spot elevation measurements with corresponding waveforms of Antarctic sea ice. The data were acquired by NASA's Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) narrow-swath instrumentation between 29 October 2017 to 22 November 2017 as part of aircraft survey campaigns funded by Operation IceBridge.
