EOSDIS Data News: May 5, 2017

Earth Observing 1 (EO-1)

Satellite imagery data products from two sensors onboard NASA's EO-1 satellite are now available through NASA’s Earthdata Search. Direct download of the data leverages the USGS EarthExplorer, which requires login credentials ( https://ers.cr.usgs.gov/register/). The EO-1 products that are available consist of data collected beginning in May 2001 through March 2017. Data collected by the EO-1 Advanced Land Imager (ALI) are comparable to Landsat panchromatic and multispectral bands at 10 meter and 30 meter resolutions, respectively. The EO-1 Hyperion hyperspectral imager provides 220 unique spectral bands at 30 meter resolution. These data support a wide range of applications such as mining, geology, forestry, agriculture and environmental management.


NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) reported that Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) has added SSM/I data from the F11 platform to the MEaSUREs Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR dataset available at NSIDC DAAC. The temporal coverage is now 9 July 1987 through 4 October 2011.


NASA's Physical Oceanography DAAC (PO.DAAC) announced that they successfully ingested and made available a new Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) accelerometer dataset named “SuperSTAR Accelerometer (ACC1B) R3 Transplant Data” from the GRACE Project. This dataset consists of accelerometer data synthesized for the GRACE-B satellite, beginning November 2016. This allows the expert user to recover gravity fields for the GRACE mission in the same manner as when both GRACE accelerometers were operational, with some added noise. This method is now used by the project to generate the GRACE Level 2 monthly gravity solutions since November 2016.


NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) released a beta version of the Global 3-Year Running Mean Ground-Level NO2 Grids from Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME), Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric ChartographY (SCIAMACHY), and GOME-2 dataset on 28 April (see: http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/set/sdei-global-3-year-running-mean-no2-gome-sciamachy-gome2). The dataset consists of a series of three-year running mean grids from 1996 to 2012 of ground level nitrogen dioxide (NO2) derived from data from three instruments: GOME, SCIAMACHY and GOME-2.
