All GEDI data products are available for free download.

GEDI data products are available at different resolutions and time intervals. Data latency times (that is the time lag between when data are acquired and when a particular product is available) are given below. The data latency depends on the level of the data product. Lower level data products (L1 & L2) are available from the NASA LPDAAC and the higher level products (L3 & L4) from the ORNL DAAC.

*MOC = Mission Operation Center, SOC = Science Operation Center, IOC = In-Orbit-Checkout
