BioClim – Fine-Scale Climate Scenarios with Annual Time Steps, 2010-2100, for the Contiguous United States

This dataset comprises two climate scenarios for the contiguous United States at a resolution of ~800m x 800m, with annual time slices from 2010 to 2100. Data include nineteen bioclimatic variables that are commonly used in ecological analyses.

Spatial Coverage: Contiguous US
Temporal Coverage: 2010 - 2100
Data Resolution: 800 m


MODIS Leaf Area Index and Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (LAI/FPAR)

MODIS FPAR/LAI is the Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active radiation that a plant canopy absorbs for photosynthesis and growth in the 0.4 – 0.7nm spectral range. Leaf area index is the biomass equivalent of FPAR. CDS has published the data in the obs4MIPs project in ESGF.

Spatial Coverage: Global
Temporal Coverage: daily, 8-day
Data Resolution: 1 km


NASA Earth Exchange (NEX) Downscaled Climate Projections (NEX-DCP30)

NEX-DCP30 is a set of high resolution, bias-corrected climate change projections that can be used to evaluate climate change impacts on processes that are sensitive to finer-scale climate gradients and the effects of local topography on climate conditions.

Spatial Coverage: Conterminous US
Temporal Coverage: 1950 – 2005 historical or 2006 – 2099 RCP, monthly
Data Resolution: 30 arc second


NASA Earth Exchange Global Daily Downscaled Projections (NEX-GDDP)

NEX GDDP- dataset is comprised of downscaled climate scenarios for the globe that are derived from the General Circulation Model (GCM) runs conducted under the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) and across two of the four greenhouse gas emissions scenarios known as Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs).

Spatial Coverage: Global
Temporal Coverage: 1950 - 2005 historical or 2006 - 2099 RCP


NASA Land Science High Resolution Data Delivery

CDS will be partnering with the University of Minnesota and NOAA's National Geodetic Survey to provide access to 1 PB of very-high resolution Land and Cryosphere geo-referenced image data for the purpose of sharing with the NASA community.
