Earthdata Webinar: Accessing Data for the World's Water with SWOT

by PODAAC - colleen » Thu Mar 07, 2024 7:27 pm America/New_York

Launched in December 2022, the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission provides an unprecedented look at Earth's water. A joint undertaking by NASA and CNES (Centre National D'Etudes Spatiales) with contributions from CSA (the Canadian Space Agency) and the United Kingdom Space Agency, SWOT measurements for surface water extent and water body elevation for rivers, lakes, and the ocean are now publicly available for scientific research and applications. This webinar will introduce SWOT and show data users how to discover, access, and utilize SWOT data products via cloud computing and local download as well as through data transformation tools like the High-level Tool for Interactive Data Extraction (HiTIDE). The webinar will showcase SWOT data recipes and tutorials from the PO.DAAC Cookbook to help you get started. Join us to learn how SWOT data could augment your existing data workflows or lead to new, innovative science and applications in the world of water.
