Goddard Satellite-Based Surface Turbulent Fluxes Climatology, 0.25 x 0.25 deg, Yearly Grid V3 (GSSTFYC) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

These data are the Goddard Satellite-based Surface Turbulent Fluxes Version-3 Dataset recently produced through a MEaSUREs funded project led by Dr. Chung-Lin Shie (UMBC/GEST, NASA/GSFC), converted to HDF-EOS5 format. The stewardship of this HDF-EOS5 dataset is part of the MEaSUREs project.

This is the fine resolution version of the previously released GSSTFYC.2c.

This is the Yearly Climatology product; data are projected to equidistant Grid that covers the globe at 0.25x00.25 degree cell size, resulting in data arrays of 1440x720 size.

Starting from previous Version 2c, these data have only one set of Combined data, "Set1". The Yearly Climatology HDF-EOS5 file also contains one extra grid of NCEP Climatology, "NCEP".

Starting with this Version 3, the "WB" variable, "lowest 500-m precipitable water" has been discontinued.

The short name for this product is GSSTFYC.
