An update on the ORNL DAAC's Soil Moisture Visualizer (SMV) is featured in AGU's Eos, Earth & Space Science News.

Highlights from the Literature

Northern Borneo soil carbon density

Map of predicted soil carbon density (SCD) over the study area in northern Borneo. Reproduced from Labriere et al. (2016).

ORNL DAAC data products were cited in over 300 peer-reviewed articles in 2018. Read about how these data are used in research.

Mapping Surface Waters from ABoVE

Open surface waters for a location in Canada

Orthomosaic imagery taken from a Beechcraft Super King Air B200 aircraft traveling north of the Mackenzie River in the Dehcho Region of Canada.

NASA's 2017 ABoVE airborne campaign provides high-resolution, georeferenced, three-band orthomosaics of digital imagery to validate maps of Arctic surface water extent.

Explore with the Updated Airborne Data Visualizer

Demonstration of the Airborne Flight Visualizer

The new interface for the Airborne Data Visualizer has separate views for exploring flight details or 3-variable plots.

View and access atmospheric gas data from NASA's ACT-America mission with the updated Airborne Data Visualizer.

Data Highlight: Nitrogen Deposition

Total inorganic nitrogen deposition in the early 1990s.

Spatial patterns of total inorganic nitrogen deposition in the early 1990s. Darker areas have higher levels of nitrogen deposition (mg N/m2/y).

Gridded estimates of atmospheric nitrogen deposition are some of the most downloaded data of 2018.
