EOSDIS Land Data
Land products involve two related Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) disciplines. Land Surface includes geophysical processes and parameters involving the Earth’s land surfaces (e.g., surface temperature, soil moisture, vegetation cover, and land use). The Solid Earth discipline includes data sets related to processes arising in the Earth’s interior (e.g., gravity, geomagnetism, tectonics) which, although originating from below the surface, still can be analyzed from ground, air, or space-based measurements. Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) hold land surface and solid earth data sets, with some products overlapping other disciplines, such as frozen ground also within the Cryosphere discipline and some surface radiative property data sets contained also in the Atmosphere discipline. The primary DAACs specializing in this discipline are the Crustal Dynamics Data and Information System (CDDIS), Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC). Several other DAACs also hold land data as they relate to their respective disciplines. Near real-time data for Land applications can be found at Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE).
