Data Acquisition

L3 CLDPROP COSP Data Acquisition

The Level-1 and Atmosphere Archive & Distribution System (LAADS) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), located in the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is one of twelve NASA EOSDIS DAACs, whose discipline domain is atmospheric science. The LAADS DAAC serves the global NASA Terra and Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), as well as other instruments. It should be noted that LAADS web site searches are limited to 2000 files; so you may need to limit the time period or spatial coordinates to complete a search successfully. If you don't want to limit either field, you can go directly to the LAADS FTP site (also linked below) to download data.
