Recent NASA Article Highlights Daymet

Input weather stations are mapped onto a DEM across North America.

Each black dot on this digital elevation map (DEM) represents a surface weather station in continental North America providing Daymet data in 2010. Additional stations providing Daymet data are located in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

Daymet derived annual average of daily minimum temperature, 1980 (left) and 2019 (right), for a subset of North America. Images are scaled from -20 to +20 degrees C.

Daymet 2019 Data Now Available

Map of Daymet Single Pixel Download Locations

The Single Pixel Extraction Tool allows a user to obtain daily Daymet data in a tabular format for a single geographic point (pixel) specified by latitude and longitude.

Daymet gridded estimates of daily weather parameters are now available for the years 1980 to 2019.

Long-term Climate Normals for Alaska

Annual Average Maximum Temperature for Alaska

30-year annual average maximum temperature for Alaska at 60-m resolution for (a) the last glacial maximum period ~18,000 years ago and (b) the modern period 1975-2005.

A new dataset provides 30-year climate 'normals' for the last glacial maximum (~18,000 years ago) and the present day in Alaska.

Black Carbon Aerosols from ATom

The SP2 instrument.

The NOAA Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2) is a laser-induced incandescence instrument primarily used for measuring the black carbon mass content of individual particles.

Black carbon concentrations were measured over remote regions of the Earth during NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) Mission.
