WebApp making api call to MERRA-2 dataset

by leila.alhemali » Thu Jan 27, 2022 5:23 pm America/New_York

I am working on a solar spectra modeling tool that gets 5 different atmospheric inputs from the MERRA-2 dataset. I need 144 of the .nc4 files for my program to work well. Is there a publicly available API or another way to access the GES DISC server through my app?
