Knowledgebase : Atmospheric Sciences Data Center (ASDC)

The Atmospheric Sciences Data Center (ASDC) is located at NASA's Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia.

The ASDC supports more than 40 projects and has more than 1800 archived data sets. These data sets were obtained from satellite measurements, field experiments, and modeled data products. ASDC projects are focused on the Earth science disciplines Radiation Budget, Clouds, Aerosols, and Tropospheric Chemistry. A complete list of data sets is available at: http://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov
