National Climate Assessment - Land Data Assimilation Version 2.0 (NCA-LDAS V2.0) Released

01.06.2020
The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory and the Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) has released the National Climate Assessment - Land Data Assimilation Version 2.0 (NCA-LDAS V2.0) hydrologic trends data product. The data product consists of annual trends in 15 terrestrial water and energy balance components over the conterminous U.S., created using the NCA-LDAS v2.0 daily dataset for the water years 1980-2015.

Overview

The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory examines the role of water in the Earth system. Laboratory researchers strive to better understand, quantify, and analyze the hydrological cycle and to measure hydrological processes in order to improve prediction of the response of global hydrology to anthropogenic and/or natural climate change.

Special emphasis is placed on land surface hydrological processes and their interactions with the atmosphere. Laboratory scientists develop remote-sensing and modeling techniques to investigate how the various components of the hydrological cycle interact over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales.
