  • ABoVE: LVIS L3 Gridded Vegetation Structure across North America, 2017 and 2019

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C2264350397-ORNL_CLOUD.xml
    Description:

    This dataset provides Level 3 (L3) footprint-level gridded metrics and attributes collected from NASA's Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS)-Facility instrument for each flightline from 2017 and 2019. In 2017, the LVIS-Facility instrument was flown at a nominal flight altitude of 28,000 ft onboard a Dynamic Aviation Super King Air B200T. In 2019, the LVIS-Facility and LVIS-Classic instruments were flown at a nominal flight altitude of 41,000 feet onboard the NASA Gulfstream V. LVIS data are collected as waveforms over footprints of ~10-m diameter. The L3 data include grids of canopy relative height (RH), complexity, canopy cover (CC), ground elevation, and the number of LVIS footprints available to produce a pixel's estimate.. These 30-m resolution grids describe the vertical column of the vegetation canopy in detail with relative canopy height metrics and are enriched with an additional set of canopy cover estimates at a variety of height thresholds. The LVIS-Facility instrument 2017 and 2019 acquisitions span Arctic, boreal, temperate, and sub-tropical landscapes in support of a variety of Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE)- and Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI)-related science. In the ABoVE study domain of arctic and boreal Alaska and Western Canada, some of these acquisitions coincide spatially with legacy small-footprint airborne lidar. Data are included for the ABoVE domain and also for the continental U.S. and central America from GEDI. Data files are provided in GeoTIFF format and one geopackage file shows flightlines.

  • CATS-ISS Level 1B Day Mode 7.1 Version 3-00

    Description:

    CATS-ISS_L1B_D-M7.1-V3-00 is the Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) International Space Station (ISS) Level 1B Day Mode 7.1 Version 3-00 data product. The collection spans from February 10, 2015 through March 21, 2015. CATS, which was launched on January 10, 2015, was a lidar remote sensing instrument that provided range-resolved profile measurements of atmospheric aerosols and clouds from the ISS. CATS was intended to operate on-orbit for up to three years. CATS provides vertical profiles at three wavelengths, orbiting between ~230 and ~270 miles above the Earth's surface at a 51-degree inclination with nearly a three-day repeat cycle. For the first time, scientists were able to study diurnal (day-to-night) changes in cloud and aerosol effects from space by observing the same spot on Earth at different times each day. Level 1B data have been calibrated and annotated with ancillary meteorological data and processed to sensor units.
