EOSDIS Data News - 10/12/2018

GES DISC

NASA's Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) published a re-release of legacy TIROS (Television and Infrared Observation Satellite) Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) Pathfinder Path A Level-3 monthly Version 2 data products for TIROS N, NOAA 6 through NOAA 12, and NOAA 14. The products were reformatted at GES DISC into network Common Data Format (NetCDF) format. TOVS was one of the first long-term sources of high resolution global information pertaining to the temperature and moisture structure of the atmosphere. The data can potentially be used to identify and monitor trends in temperature, moisture, clouds, radiation, and precipitation.

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs):

NASA GES DISC published the Level 2 Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research (MEaSUREs) aerosol products OMIAuraAER (from OMI), TOMSEPAER (from Earth Probe-TOMS) and TOMSN7AER (from Nimbus 7 TOMS), which include UV Aerosol Index (UVAI), aerosol optical depth (AOD) and aerosol single scattering albedo (SSA), as well as calculated aerosol absorption optical depth (AAOD).
