The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program aims to develop consistent global and continent scale data records related to earth science, or Earth System Data Records (ESDRs).
MEaSUREs is a program funded by NASA to support individual scientists and groups in data product generation, using proven algorithms and input data sets. In effect, MEaSUREs projects function as additional processing facilities for NASA, and are subject to rigorous standards for data quality, validation, algorithm description, documentation, and delivery.
NSIDC currently archives and distributes several data sets from the MEaSUREs program.
- Data Summaries - Lists MEaSUREs data sets currently available from NSIDC.
- A-CAP and G-CAP Map Servers - Describes two map server products developed by NSIDC for accessing cryospheric data related to Greenland and Antarctica.
- News - Lists updates to, or problems with, the data.
