PO.DAAC

NASA's Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) completed operational ingestion of five Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) datasets from the Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) for SMAP Level 2 Sea Surface Salinity V3.0 70km; Level 3 Sea Surface Salinity Standard Mapped Image 8-Day Running Mean V3.0 40km and 70km; Level 3 Sea Surface Salinity Standard Mapped Image Monthly V3.0 40km and 70km Validated Datasets. The sixth new dataset for RSS SMAP Level 2 Sea Surface Salinity V3.0 40km Validated Dataset was received, tested and operational ingestion is underway in preparation for public release.

On 19 October, NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) released beta versions of the revised POPGRID website and the POPGRID map viewer, provide information and tools to compare a number of global population grid and settlement layers (see: http://beta.www.popgrid.org and http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/mapping/popgrid/). POPGRID is a data collaborative involving SEDAC and other major developers of population grids and settlement data, including many products that are modeled based on remote sensing inputs.
