API Keys

by EarthdataForumContributor » Wed Jun 03, 2020 1:05 pm America/New_York

I am trying to access the API Keys I am using to retrieve different data products (MOPITT, MODIS etc). I am logging on the urs.earthdata.nasa.gov but I can not find the way to access the API keys to verify they are still valid or renew them otherwise. Thank you very much in advance

Earthdata Login does not have the ability to generate API keys by themselves. You should contact the responsible DAAC in order to obtain download instructions.

Thank you for contacting us with an interest in MOPITT data.
We would like to suggest the option of using Direct Data Download for downloading MOPITT data.
This option is available from the Earthdata Atmospheric Science Data Center website.


Click on the word "DATA", located on the top of the main page of the website.
You may also be interested in "Scripts for Downloading Data". https://asdc.larc.nasa.gov/data/

Additionally, if you have questions about the data or how to use it, please feel free to ask experts your questions on the Earthdata Forum.

Warm Regards,
