Near real-time updates of NLDAS-2 datasets at the NASA GES DISC have been restored. Read More........

Data Information

 Current data hosted at HDISC include outputs from a series of land surface models in the Land Data Assimilation System (LDAS). Users can access the hourly 1/8th degree product for North America (NLDAS) or the 3-hourly 0.25 and 1.0 degree products globally (GLDAS). The files are in GRIB format. The static parameter data used by the LDAS models are available from the GSFC Land Information System.
