The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) instrument on the Global Change Observation Mission - Water 1 (GCOM-W1) provides global passive microwave measurements of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric parameters for the investigation of global water and energy cycles. Near real-time (NRT) products are generated within 3 hours of the last observations in the file, by the Land Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) at the AMSR Science Investigator-led Processing System (AMSR SIPS), which is collocated with the Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC. The GCOM-W1 NRT AMSR2 Unified L2B Global Swath Ocean Products is a swath product containing global sea surface temperature over ocean, wind speed over ocean, water vapor over ocean and cloud liquid water over ocean, using resampled NRT Level-1R data provided by JAXA. This is the same algorithm that generates the corresponding standard science products in the AMSR SIPS. The NRT products are generated in HDF-EOS-5 augmented with netCDF-4/CF metadata and are available via HTTPS from the EOSDIS LANCE system at https://lance.nsstc.nasa.gov/amsr2-science/data/level2/ocean/. If data latency is not a primary concern, please consider using science quality products. Science products are created using the best available ancillary, calibration and ephemeris information. Science quality products are an internally consistent, well-calibrated record of the Earth's geophysical properties to support science. The AMSR SIPS produces AMSR2 standard science quality data products, and they are available at the NSIDC DAAC.
