Version 6 Level-4 SMAP Soil Moisture and Carbon Data Products Released

12.08.2021
The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) project released Version 6 of the Level-4 Soil Moisture and Carbon data products. The key change in the new version is the improved precipitation forcing, which is now primarily based on IMERG products. The data are generated at the NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (610.1) and available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Vice President Harris Visits NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center

11.05.2021
Accompanied by Senator Chris Van Hollen and NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, Vice President Kamala Harris visited NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. At her visit, Vice President Harris heard presentations describing how the nation's space program studies climate change and provides crucial information to understand our planet's changes and their impacts on our lives. Lesley Ott (610.1) presented an overview of NASA climate change research and a hyperwall presentation highlighting the impacts of climate change as observed from space and the role of Earth system models in helping communities prepare. Ott was joined by Pam Melroy from NASA Headquarters, who introduced NASA's Earth Science Division, and Christian Braneon (611) from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Braneon provided examples of communities using satellite data in their environmental decision making. The event concluded with NASA Administrator Nelson and Goddard biospheric scientist Lola Fatoyinbo (618) presenting the first light Landsat-9 image.

Overview

The Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) works to maximize the impact of satellite observations in climate, weather and atmospheric composition prediction using comprehensive global models and data assimilation. To achieve this goal, the GMAO develops models and assimilation systems, generates products to support NASA instrument teams and the NASA Earth science program, and undertakes scientific research to inform system development pathways.

Assimilation systems have been developed for the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface. GMAO's long-term goal is an integrated Earth system model and assimilation system that treats the individual components in a more coupled and interactive manner. GMAO works within numerous national and international collaborations to support its mission.
