Updates to SNODAS Header files and File Directory Structure

The Snow Data Assimilation System (SNODAS), Version 1 data set, accessible through the NOAA program at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NOAA@NSIDC), was updated to correct for an extra “./“ in some of the data file paths. Users accessing this data set through a script may need to update their scripts to account for this correction.

In addition, the filename extensions for the uncompressed header files (.hdr) have been renamed to text (.txt) format. The decision to rename the file extensions was made to reduce users confusing these with standard .hdr files read by software packages like ENVI or ArcGIS. To access the data, visit the SNODAS landing page.
