On Wednesday, August 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), the following data collections may not be available due to planned system maintenance: AMSR-E, Aquarius, High Mountain Asia, IceBridge, ICESat/GLAS, ICESat-2, MEaSUREs, MODIS, NISE, SMAP, SnowEx, and VIIRS.
Welcome to the new nsidc.org! Please note that we are in a beta launch of this website. During the beta phase, our website search may act unpredictably until the website stabilizes.
AMSR-E/Aqua L2B Global Swath Ocean Products derived from Wentz Algorithm, Version 2 (AE_Ocean)
This daily Level-2B swath data set includes Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Near-Surface Wind Speed, Columnar Water Vapor, and Cloud liquid Water data arrays, and was used as input to generate the following daily, weekly, and monthly Level-3 gridded ocean products; AE_DyOcn, AE_WkOcn, and AE_MoOcn.
Programmatically request selected data products through our API. This tool is valuable for selecting just the parameters you need from big data sets. Apply spatial and temporal filters, subsetting, reformatting, and reprojection.
Many NSIDC data set web pages provide the ability to search and filter data with spatial and temporal contstraints using a map-based interface. This article outlines how to order NSIDC DAAC data using advanced searching and filtering.
To convert HDF5 files into binary format you will need to use the h5dump utility, which is part of the HDF5 distribution available from the HDF Group. How you install HDF5 depends on your operating system.
Data from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) can be accessed directly from our HTTPS file system or through our Application Programming Interface (API).
NASA Earthdata Search is a map-based interface where a user can search for Earth science data, filter results based on spatial and temporal constraints, and order data with customizations including re-formatting, re-projecting, and spatial and parameter subsetting.
