Wetlands MEaSUREs – Time Series Data

ASF DAAC’s Time Series Tool can be used to generate a graph of wetlands inundation and/or snow cover. To generate a graph for your area of interest, select a point on the map. The resulting graph can be downloaded as either an image or CSV (text) file. 

Time Series Animation

ASF DAAC’s Time Series Animation tool reveals changing patterns of global wetlands inundation from 2002-2009 at ~25 km resolution. In addition to providing an overview of global wetlands cycling, the animation enables researchers to identify regions for further investigation.

These products were derived from multiple satellite remote sensing observations including coarse resolution passive and active microwave sensors and optical data sets (e.g., ERS and SeaWinds on QuikScat scatterometers, AVHRR and MODIS) optimized specifically for inundation detection.
