VERSION 2 GODDARD SATELLITE-BASED SURFACE TURBULENT FLUXES (GSSTF) DATA

*** New ***
Through a research project (PI: Chung-Lin Shie) recently funded by the NASA MEaSUREs Program, a newly revived GSSTF Version-2b (GSSTF2b) (July 1987-December 2008) has been produced and released in October, 2010.  The datasets are located at: http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/daac-bin/DataHoldingsMEASURES.pl?PROGRAM_List=ChungLinShie
 
The Version 2 of Goddard Satellite-Based Surface Turbulent Fluxes (GSSTF) Data are produced by the surface turbulent fluxes research group at NASA GSFC (Code 912), led by Dr. Shu-Hsien Chou.

Currently, the Goddard DAAC maintains archives of three products (in binary format) from this data set.The first two provide daily and monthly-mean, global ocean, 1-degree latitude by 1-degree longitude, gridded surface fluxes and other related parameters, from July 1987 through December 2000. The third product provides the related 12 monthly-mean and one annual-mean climatology.These GSSTF Version 2 products, compared with the GSSTF Version 1 products, have a higher spatial resolution and longer temporal coverage.In addition, Version 2 products are based on all available SSM/I's (F-8, -10, -11, -13, -14). The Goddard DAAC will update this data set as new data are processed and made available by the data producers.These data are available:

  • On-line via anonymous FTP
