EOSDIS Cryosphere Data
The Cryosphere refers to any place on Earth where water is in its solid form, where low temperatures freeze water and turn it into ice. The frozen water can be in the form of solid ice or snow and occurs in many places around the Earth in addition to the Arctic and Antarctic. Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) provide cryospheric data sets provide information about land and sea ice, frozen ground (permafrost), and snow. The primary DAACs specializing in EOSDIS cryospheric data products are the National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC) and Alaska Satellite Facility DAAC (ASF DAAC). Several other DAACs also hold cryospheric data as they relate to their respective disciplines.
