NSIDC DAAC

NASA SnowEx17 SnowMicroPen (SMP) Raw Penetration Force Profiles Data Now Available
NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) has published the dataset SnowEx17 SnowMicroPen (SMP) Raw Penetration Force Profiles. This dataset contains raw penetration force profiles measured at snow pits and along linear transects at Grand Mesa, Colorado using the SMP, a digital snow penetrometer. The NASA SnowEx17 campaign was conducted in Colorado in February 2017.
New NASA IceBridge BedMachine Greenland Version 3 Data
NSIDC DAAC has published the dataset NASA IceBridge BedMachine Greenland, Version 3. Version 3 includes ocean bathymetry all around Greenland based on data from NASA’s Ocean Melting Greenland (OMG) and other campaigns of bathymetry measurements. The subglacial bed topography has also been updated by including more ice thickness data and constraining the ice thickness at the ice/ocean interface based on bathymetry data when available.
New MEaSUREs Greenland Annual Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaics from SAR and Landsat
NSIDC DAAC has published the dataset MEaSUREs Greenland Annual Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaics from SAR and Landsat, Version 1. This dataset, part of the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, contains annual ice velocity mosaics for the Greenland Ice Sheet derived from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data obtained by TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X (TSX/TDX) and Copernicus Sentinel-1A and -1B satellites, and from Landsat 8 optical imagery for years 2015 and 2016.
Data Access Change for MEaSUREs Multi-year Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaic
NSIDC DAAC would like to announce a change to data access for the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Multi-year Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaic, Version 1 data set. Data access is now solely available through our primary archive at: https://n5eil01u.ecs.nsidc.org/MEASURES/NSIDC-0670.001/. File level spatial and temporal metadata have been added to aid in searching and ordering the data through Earthdata Search.
New Data Available for MEaSUREs Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR
NSIDC DAAC has published SMMR data to the dataset MEaSUREs Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR, Version 1. Also, the Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) F10 data from this data set is now available at version 1.2. The minor change in this version corrects the handling of QC flags to retain more data, eliminating only the flagged data in a given channel and taking care not to eliminate data in other channels. This data set is part of Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program.
New Data for MEaSUREs Greenland Image Mosaics from Sentinel-1A and 1B
NSIDC DAAC has published new data for August 2017 to the dataset MEaSUREs Greenland Image Mosaics from Sentinel-1A and 1B, Version 2 . The mosaics are derived from C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (C-SAR) acquired by the Copernicus Sentinel-1A and -1B imaging satellites between January 2015 and August 2017.

This data set is part of the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program.
