Tutorials and Data "How-To" Recipes

Data recipes are tutorials that include step-by-step instructions to help users learn how to discover, access, subset, visualize and use Earth science data, information, tools and services. These tutorials cover many different data products across the Earth science disciplines and different data discovery and data access tools, including programming languages and related software.

For assistance with any of these tutorials, please contact Earthdata Support and we will forward you to the appropriate DAAC user services office.
