New Data Available in the Geo Data Portal

Release Date:

New datasets are now available through the Geo Data Portal: Bias Corrected Constructed Analogs (BCCA) V2 Daily Climate Projections; The North America Land Data Assimilation System Phase 2.0 (NLDAS-2); and Global Land Data Assimilation System Version 2 (GLDAS-2)

March 18, 2014: The North America Land Data Assimilation System Phase 2.0 (NLDAS-2) and Global Land Data Assimilation System Version 2 (GLDAS-2) data sets are now available through the USGS Geo Data Portal (GDP). Users can access the NLDAS-2 and GLDAS-2 data and get “Areal Statistics” for specified geo-regions, shapefiles, or polygons, through the USGS GDP.  These datasets were released through a collaborative effort between the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

April 10, 2014:  A new dataset is now available through the Geo Data Portal: Bias Corrected Constructed Analogs (BCCA) V2 Daily Climate Projections. This archive contains daily BCCA CMIP3 and CMIP5 projections of precipitation, daily maximum, and daily minimum temperature over the contiguous United States. The dataset content is based on global climate projections from the World Climate Research Programme's (WCRP's) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) multi-model dataset referenced in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report, and the phase 5 (CMIP5) multi-model dataset that is informing the IPCC Fifth Assessment.
