The GrADS Data Server (GDS, formerly known as GrADS-DODS Server) is a stable, secure data server that provides subsetting and analysis services across the internet. The core of the GDS is OPeNDAP (also known as DODS), a software framework used for data networking that makes local data accessible to remote locations.

Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) Gridded Data

GLDAS is generating a series of land surface state and flux products simulated by four land surface models (CLM, Mosaic, Noah and VIC). Current products include a set of 1.0 degree resolution data products from the four models (1979 to present) and a 0.25 degree data product from the Noah model (2000 to present).

The information on this page is provided to GrADS-Data Server GDS users. Assuming the users have some knowledge of the GrADS-Data client/server software, the information shown here enables variable extraction from GLDAS model data sets on the GrADS-Data Server.
