FLDAS Daily Data - Discontinued?

by tylerbox » Thu Apr 16, 2020 12:29 pm America/New_York

Hi Earthdata Forum,

I'm looking for land surface temperature data in West Africa, which I had previously been pulling (as recently as January) from the FEWSNET Land Data Assimilation System. Now I can only find a monthly version of the same data. Why has this data set been taken down? Is there any sort of archive for this?
