GHRC DAAC

NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) published the GPM Ground Validation Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) OLYMPEX dataset. AMPR is an airborne passive microwave radiometer from which cloud, precipitation, water vapor, wind speed and wind direction can be obtained using advanced algorithms with the 10.7, 19.35, 37.1, and 85.5 GHz microwave frequency brightness temperatures. The AMPR brightness temperatures were collected during the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) field campaign. AMPR data at the Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC include netCDF format data files of brightness temperature and PNG browse files of Quality Control Flags and Brightness Temperatures.

NASA's Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC) is pleased to announce the availability of the MODIS Version 6 Downward Shortwave Radiation (DSR) and Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) products. DSR and PAR are key variables in a variety of land-surface applications including ecosystem and hydrological modeling. The Level 3, 5 kilometer data products have been produced from 2001 and will continue to be processed to present day over the coming weeks. The DSR and PAR products are derived from combined. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for each dataset is given below to provide users with a persistent link to the product information.
