  • Skin Sea Surface Temperature data from the (A)ATSR Validation Campaign by SISTeR. The prime objective of the (A)ATSR mission is to return accurate measurements of the global sea surface temperature. To ensure the accuracy of the measurement, there have been joint efforts to validate the data. One of these efforts is the (A)ATSR Validation Campaign which involves the deployment of the Scanning Infrared Sea surface Temperature Radiometer (SISTeR). The SISTeR is a self-calibrating radiometer that measures the skin sea surface temperature. The SISTeR was mounted on MS Color Festival and MS Prinsesse Ragnhild to return skin sea surface temperature in the North Sea in 2006, and was on-board RMS Queen Mary 2 collecting data from the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean and Western Pacific between 2010 and 2014. Data was collected continuously throughout the cruises unless severe weather conditions required the instrument to be protected, which results in the prevention of the data collection.

  • The Airborne Research & Survey Facility (ARSF, formerly Airborne Remote Sensing Facility) is managed by NERC Scientific Services and Programme Management. It provides the UK environmental science community, and other potential users, with the means to obtain remotely-sensed data in support of research, survey and monitoring programmes. The ARSF is a unique service providing environmental researchers, engineers and surveyors with synoptic analogue and digital imagery of high spatial and spectral resolution.The NEODC holds the entire archive of Airborne Thematic Mapper (ATM) and Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) data acquired by the NERC ARSF. High-resolution scanned digital versions of the entire collection of analogue photographs are now also available as well as selected LiDAR-derived elevation and terrain models for selected sites flown using the sensor.

  • Data from the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) on-board ENVISAT are available for the UK from 2002-2009. The raw data for the alternating polarisation, wide swath and image modes were acquired by the Landmap project from ESA and processed to produce 8 and 32-bit greyscale and multi-difference colour composite geotiff images. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.

  • scPDSI consists of global maps of monthly self-calibrating Palmer Drought Severity Index (scPDSI) which have been calculated for 1901-2009 based on the CRU TS 3.10.01 data sets. The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) is a measure of soil moisture availability that has been used extensively to study droughts and wet spells in the contiguous USA and elsewhere, particularly as the primary indicator of the severity and extent of recent droughts. Recently, the PDSI has become more popular as a drought metric in studies quantifying possible trends in future soil moisture availability and it has been used as the basis for reconstructing past variations in drought.

  • The EMERALD projects were airborne measurement campaigns designed to study dynamical, microphysical and infra-red radiative properties of cirrus clouds, using both in-situ and remote measurement techniques. The dataset contains static air temperature, static air pressure, relative humidity, water vapour mixing ratio, and ozone mixing ratio. These data are part of the NERC Clouds, Water Vapour and Climate (CWVC) programme.

Below is the description from https://ladsweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/missions-and-measurements/products/MYD03 The MYD03 product inculdes the geolocation fields that are calculated for each 1 km MODIS Instantaneous Field of Views (IFOV) for all orbits daily. The locations and ancillary information correspond to the intersection of the centers of each IFOV from 10 detectors in an ideal 1 km band on the Earth's surface. A digital terrain model is used to model the Earth's surface. The main inputs are the spacecraft attitude and orbit, the instrument telemetry and the digital elevation model. The geolocation fields include geodetic Latitude, Longitude, surface height above the geoid, solar zenith and azimuth angles, satellite zenith and azimuth angles, and a land/sea mask for each 1 km sample. Additional information is included in the header to enable the calculation of the approximate location of the center of the detectors for any of the 36 MODIS bands. This product is used as input by a large number of subsequent MODIS products, particularly those produced by the Land team.
