EOSDIS Data News - 8/18/2017


The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC), in collaboration with the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Science team announce the public release of Version 005 of the Airborne Multiangle SpectroPolarimetric Imager (AirMSPI) Level 1B2 data products for the Polarimeter Definition Experiment (PODEX) flight campaign. AirMSPI Level 1B2 products contain radiometric and polarimetric images of clouds, aerosols, and the surface of the Earth. In particular, products contain map-projected data at 8 wavelengths: 355, 380, 445, 470, 555, 660, 865, and 935 nm. The data products include radiance, time, solar zenith, solar azimuth, view zenith, and view azimuth for all spectral bands. Wavelengths for which polarization information is available (470, 660, and 865 nm) also include the Stokes parameters Q and U, as well as degree of linear polarization (DOLP) and angle of linear polarization (AOLP). Q, U, and AOLP are reported relative to both the scattering- and view meridian planes. Files are distributed in HDF-EOS-5 format. This release of AirMSPI data contains all targets acquired during the PODEX flight campaign. PODEX was based out of NASA’s Armstrong (formerly Dryden) Flight Research Center in Palmdale, CA, and focused on clouds and aerosols in and around California. AirMSPI data were acquired from January 14 through February 6, 2013.

The F11 data from the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR, Version 1 data set is now available at version 1.2. The minor change in this version corrects the handling of QC flags to retain more data, eliminating only the flagged data in a given channel and taking care not to eliminate data in other channels. This data set is part of the MEaSUREs Program.

NASA IceBridge DMS L0 Raw Imagery for the Spring 2017 Arctic campaign is now available from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). This data set contains level zero imagery taken from the Digital Mapping System (DMS) over Antarctica and Greenland.

NASA IceBridge DMS L1B Geolocated and Orthorectified Images for the 2017 Arctic campaign are now available at NSIDC DAAC. This data set contains Level-1B imagery taken from the Digital Mapping System (DMS) over Greenland and Antarctica.
