International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP II)

Overview

[ISLSCP II Logo]The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project, Initiative II (ISLSCP II) was part of the Global Energy and Water Experiment (GEWEX) and was responsible for addressing land-atmosphere interactions, process modeling, data retrieval algorithms, field experiment design and execution, and the development of global data sets. The ISLSCP II data set collection contains about 50 comprehensive data sets over the 10 year period from 1986 through 1995 focused on land cover, hydrometeorology, radiation, and soils.
