EOSDIS Data News - 06/30/2017
The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) in collaboration with the Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES) team announced the release of Edition 4.0 of the Energy Balanced and Filled (EBAF) Surface data product. EBAF-Surface Ed. 4.0 leverages off of the many algorithm improvements that have been made in the Ed. 4 suite of CERES Level 1 - 3 data products. Surface fluxes included in Ed. 4 EBAF-Surface are consistent with top-of-atmosphere fluxes included in the Ed. 4 EBAF-TOA data product that was released earlier this year. This initial release covers the period March 2000 - February 2016.
- GPM Ground Validation Airborne Precipitation Radar 3rd Generation (APR-3) The Olympic Mountain Experiment (OLYMPEX) dataset. This dataset provides radar reflectivity, doppler velocity for all bands, linear depolarization ratio at Ku-band, and normalized radar cross section measurements at Ka and Ku-bands. Ku-band, Ka-band and W-band frequency doppler measurements were made from the DC-8 aircraft at 10km altitude.
- GPM Ground Validation National Center for Atmospheric Research Particle Probes The Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology EXperiment (IPHEx) dataset consists of Ice Water Content (IWC), particle concentration normalized by bin width, and total particle concentration data that were collected from three instruments on the University of North Dakota (UND) Citation aircraft during the IPHEx campaign from May 9, 2014 to June 12, 2014.
The Socioeconomic Data and Applications Data Center (SEDAC) released the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) Observed Climate Change Impacts Database, Version 2.01 data set in beta.
