National Snow and Ice Data Center DAAC (NSIDC DAAC)
National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center
The NSIDC provides data and information for snow and ice processes, particularly interactions among snow, ice, atmosphere, and ocean, in support of research in global change detection and model validation. It archives and distributes cryosphere and climate related products from several EOS sensors including MODIS, AMSR-E, and GLAS. NSIDC also provides general data and information services to the cryospheric and polar processes research community. NSIDC is located in Boulder, CO. NSIDC has served at the forefront of cryospheric data management practices since 1976. NSIDC is part of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, a joint institute of University of Colorado Boulder and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
