Global Hydrometeorology Resource Center DAAC (GHRC DAAC)

Disciplines: Lightning, tropical cyclones, and storm-induced hazards

NASA's Global Hydrometeorology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) is a joint venture of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and the Information Technology and Systems Center (ITSC) located within the University of Alabama in Huntsville. GHRC DAAC was established in 1991 and is located at the National Space Science and Technology Center on the UAH campus.

GHRC DAAC provides a comprehensive active archive of both data and knowledge augmentation services, with a focus on hazardous weather, its governing dynamical and physical processes, and associated applications.

With this broad mandate, GHRC DAAC focuses on lightning, tropical cyclones, and storm-induced hazards through integrated collections of satellite, airborne, and in-situ data sets.

Milestone Publication

Jun 9, 2023

The Global Hydrometeorology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC has successfully published the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) Level 3 gridded products dataset. This publication is significant for several reasons. First, this is the culmination of effort to archive these data that came out of a previous GLM science team meeting.


All CPEX-AW Datasets Completely Published

Jun 9, 2023

The Global Hydrometeorology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC has completed archiving all datasets for the Convective Processes Experiment - Aerosols and Wind (CPEX-AW) field campaign. This clears the way to wrap up the older CPEX campaign that GHRC has received data for and to prepare for the incoming CPEX-Cabo Verde data.
