About LANCE AMSR-E

The AMSRE-SIPS at the GHRC DAAC has generated climate research quality data products, since the launch of Aqua in the spring of 2002. Now, with the implementation of LANCE in the summer of 2010 at the processing facility in Huntsville, the LANCE AMSR-E near-real-time products, with noted limitations, are generated and available to registered users via standard FTP with an average latency of less than 3 hours.

While not a substitute for climate research quality products, near real-time products are in high demand in fields such as numerical weather prediction and forecasting, monitoring of natural hazards, disaster relief, agriculture and homeland security.

More information about LANCE AMSR-E near-real-time products can be found in our FAQ.

Please contact us for additional information on LANCE data, and instructions on how to register and begin receiving these near real time products.

LANCE AMSR-E System Highlights

Fully redundant strings of equipment in different locations on the UAHuntsville campus greatly reduce the likelihood of data unavailability due to system outage.
SIPS is using the same science algorithms running at the distributed processing sites, but with a direct input stream from NASA EDOS, minutes after downlink from the ground stations.
In addition to processing and distribution, the SIPS provides full data center support, including user services and documentation.
