NASA's Alaska Satellite Facility Distributed Active Archive Center (ASF DAAC) now offers on-demand processing of Sentinel-1 datasets within the Vertex user interface, allowing users to submit GRD or SLC products for RTC processing. These on-demand products are generally available for download within 30 minutes of the request. This webinar will introduce users to radiometrically terrain corrected (RTC) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) datasets and demonstrate the process of using Vertex to search for source granules, submit them for processing, and access the finished products.

What do you get when you combine data from sensors aboard two groundbreaking Earth observing missions into a single dataset? When it comes to the provisional release of the Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 (HLS) dataset, the result is global land surface data products with high temporal and spatial attributes that are uniquely processed to facilitate a wide range of terrestrial Earth science research. A new Earthdata feature article describes not only how to acquire amazing HLS 30-meter resolution imagery, but how HLS is a glimpse into the future of upcoming high-volume data missions that will be distributed by NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS).

Recently, NASA’s Land, Atmosphere Near Real-Time Capability for EOS (LANCE) developers partnered with the USDA Forest Service’s Geospatial Technology and Applications Center (GTAC) to create FIRMS US/Canada, a new and expanded version of the Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) released earlier this year. FIRMS US/Canada modernizes and optimizes the USDA Forest Service’s distribution of active fire information by leveraging LANCE’s web-based active fire mapping tools and capabilities for disseminating data, products, and services and is tailored to the Forest Service and wildland fire community’s active fire mapping needs. Expanded capabilities include additional map layers, administrative ownership boundaries, daily fire danger forecasts, and current National Weather Service fire weather watch and red flag warning areas.
