GEDI L1A data access

by ctampion » Fri Mar 18, 2022 7:54 pm America/New_York

Hello,
The Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) for GEDI Transmit and Receive Waveform Processing for L1 and L2 Products says:
"...end users wanting access to the raw waveform can request the L1A data
product."
Source: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/documents/581/GEDI_WF_ATBD_v1.0.pdf

How does one request this data?

Thank you.

Hi,
There are several ways to get the data. You could go to the Earthdata Search tool and order through it: https://search.earthdata.nasa.gov/search

Also, there are some python and R scripts available to access the data: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/tools/data-prep-scripts/
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Brett

Hello,
Thanks for your reply.
Are you sure those options provide access to L1A data? I do not see L1A on EarthdataSearch, for example.
Thank you.

The Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Version 1 data products were decommissioned on February 15, 2022.
Please see the News Announcement here: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/news/gedi-version-1-data-products-decommissioned-on-february-15-2022/

Hello,
I’m hoping to access Level 1A data (as distinct from Version 1 data) which the ATBD says can be requested.
Thank you.
