LANCE NRT AMSR2 Daily L3 Global SWE EASE-Grids dataset available
8/17/15
The NASA Land Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) processing element, a component of the AMSR Science Investigator–led Processing System (SIPS) at the Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) in Huntsville, Alabama, announced the availability of the dataset NRT AMSR2 Daily L3 Global Snow Water Equivalent EASE-Grids. This dataset contains snow water equivalent (SWE) data and quality assurance flags mapped to the Northern and Southern Hemisphere 25 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grids (EASE-Grids).  It is generated incrementally in near real-time, as data are acquired from the AMSR2 instrument on the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Global Change Observation Mission for Water - 1 (GCOM-W1) satellite.  LANCE AMSR2 snow imagery is available through the Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) and will be visible in Worldview very soon.
