ISLSCP II Land and Water Masks with Ancillary Data

Data Set Overview

Data setISLSCP II Land and Water Masks with Ancillary Data
Release date2013-12-11
ProjectInternational Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP II)
Time Period1986-01-01 to 1995-12-31


This data set contains the ISLSCP II fixed land/water masks and percentages of land or water in each cell. There are seven zip data files: four produced from a 1-km land/water mask compiled at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in support of NASA's Earth Observing System; two files of a land outline overlay created from the land/water mask files created at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center; and one file which is a latitude grid coordinate file and longitude grid coordinate file produced by the ISLSCP II staff. All of these data are provided at three spatial resolutions of .25, 0.5 and 1-degree in latitude and longitude and on a common Earth grid.
