ACCESS NASA EARTH SCIENCE DATA
NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
NASA’s Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) has released two new data products from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) mission. The GRACE-FO data expand GRACE’s legacy of scientific achievements. These include tracking mass changes in Earth’s polar ice sheets and mountain glaciers, which impact global sea level; estimating total water storage on land (from groundwater changes in deep aquifers to changes in soil moisture and surface water); inferring changes in deep ocean currents, which are a driving force in climate; and even measuring changes within the solid Earth itself, such as postglacial rebound and the impact of major earthquakes.

The wait is over! The first publicly available Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) data is available at NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). Data collected by instruments aboard Earth observing satellites have ushered in a new age of cryospheric exploration and are providing measurements with a precision that could not even be imagined by late-19th century researchers. This is the story of the ICESat-2 data—how these data are collected, processed, and archived, as well as how they can be accessed and used, fully and freely, by anyone anywhere in the world. These data will shed new light on an ever-changing world, all collected, in the words of the ICESat-2 team, “one laser pulse at a time, 10,000 laser pulses a second.” Learn more: https://go.nasa.gov/2Mdr5kB
The Trends in Global Freshwater Availability from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), 2002-2016 dataset is a global gridded dataset at a spatial resolution of 0.5 degrees that presents trends (rate of change measured in centimeters per year) in freshwater availability based on data obtained from 2002 to 2016 by NASA GRACE. Terrestrial water availability storage is the sum of groundwater, soil moisture, snow and ice, surface waters, and wet biomass, expressed as an equivalent height of water. GRACE measures changes in the terrestrial water cycle by assessing small changes in Earth's gravity field.
