Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) | Collaboration between NASA MSFC and The University of Alabama in Huntsville


In order to increase security for NASA EOSDIS users and provide a more uniform experience across data offerings, EOSDIS is making a change to the way in which NASA Earth Science data are downloaded. You now need to create and use an Earthdata Login to download or order GHRC data.  Please read our Earthdata Login recipe page for help and additional information.

    2015 Highlights - GHRC Accomplishments and Annual Report from 2015

  • "Profiles in Intensity"

    Earthdata's Agnieszka Gautier has written an article called "Profiles in intensity" describing how NASA's Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) field campaign observations are being used to gain more insight into the intensity and convection structures of tropical storms. GHRC serves as an archive for HS3 data.

  • LANCE SWE imagery available in NASA Worldview

    Snow water equivalent (SWE) imagery is now available in NASA Worldview from the NASA Land Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) processing element. LANCE AMSR2 is a component of the AMSR Science Investigator-led Processing System (SIPS) at the GHRC DAAC. This NASA Worldview image shows snow in the Andes as seen from AMSR2 on August 25.

  • HyDRO

    We have improved HyDRO, our data discovery and access tool! The updated design improves the user experience in navigating search results to find all relevant dataset information, including metadata and documentation, browse imagery, inventory listing and download location.


GHRC’s mission is to serve as NASA’s Earth science data stewards for scientific, educational, commercial and governmental communities. The GHRC also provides knowledge augmentation services encompassing tools, infrastructure, user support, and expertise to our stakeholders. GHRC is supported by NASA and is managed jointly by the Marshall Space Flight Center's Earth Science Office and the University of Alabama in Huntsville's Information Technology & Systems Center.
