EOSDIS Data News: April 7, 2017


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) released the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Digital Elevation Model from GeoEye and Worldview Imagery dataset (doi:10.5067/H0KUYVF53Q8M). This dataset consists of an enhanced resolution digital elevation model for the Greenland Ice Sheet.


NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC) released the following Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) datasets:
ORNL DAAC added five new soil moisture datasets to the Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) soil moisture visualizer:
  • US Regional Climate Reference Network (USCRN) (83 sites)
  • Snow Climate Analysis Network (SCAN) (227 sites)
  • Snow Telemetry (SNOTEL) Data Collection Network (454 sites)
  • AmeriFlux (AMERIFLUX2015, 123 sites)
  • Soil Moisture Conditions from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Data Assimilation for Drought Monitor (GRACE DA DM)


NASA's Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC) informed its users that NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information stopped production of its Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Specification (GDS) 1 Level 4 Sea Surface Temperature dataset (see https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/announcements/2017-03-22_GHRSST_GDS1_L4_NCDC_AVHRR_OI_SST_Dataset). Users are encouraged to switch to the GDS2 version of this dataset, which is already in full production.
