EOSDIS Data News: June 2, 2017


NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC), in collaboration with the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Science team, released CERES Single Scanner Footprint SSF1deg-Hour_NPP-VIIRS_Edition1A data. The CERES SSF1deg-Hour/Day/Month products provide 1°-regional gridded instantaneous (hour), daily and monthly averaged top of the atmosphere (TOA) radiative fluxes and associated Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)-derived cloud properties from the observed instantaneous footprint SSF Edition 1A fluxes and clouds.

NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published three Global Precipitation Measurement Ground Validation (GPM-GV) Rain Gauge datasets, 2 from the Olympic Mountain Experiment (OLYMPEX) campaign and 1 from the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx). The OLYMPEX Rain Gauge datasets contain data gathered during 2015-2016 on the Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The IPHEx Rain Gauge dataset contains data during Spring 2014 from multiple sites of the Southern Appalachian region of North Carolina. All datasets collected precipitation amounts and the OLYMPEX datasets additionally calculated the precipitation rates.
NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC) published the following datasets to its online archive:
  • Pre-Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (Pre-ABoVE): Land Cover and Vegetation Map, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. ORNL DAAC, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA.
  • Daymet: Station-Level Inputs and Model Predicted Values for North America, Version 3. ORNL DAAC, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA.

NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) released the U.S. Census Grids (Summary File 1), 2010 dataset in production (see http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/set/usgrid-summary-file1-2010). These grids have a resolution of 30 arc-seconds or approximately 1 square km and are based on census block geography from Census 2010 TIGER/Line Files and census variables (population, households, and housing variables). The 2010 grids are consistent with the 30-arc-second grids for the U.S. for 1990 and 2000 (and the year 2000 grid for Puerto Rico).
