I am trying to download transpiration and snow cover data from earth data but unable to figure out how to do that
To download the data from earth data, the following needs to be done
Go to https://urs.earthdata.nasa.gov/ and create an account. Note the username and password which will be used to download the data.
In your linux root create a file .netrc and enter the following
machine urs.earthdata.nasa.gov login your_login password your_password
Go to https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/datasets and search your dataset of interest and then click it
4.On the right hand side you will see a get data button, click that button.
5.Now a dialog box will open, click get data
Now another dialog box will open, click download links list, a list of the files will get downloaded.
Now in the terminal fire the following command
wget --load-cookies ~/.urs_cookies --save-cookies ~/.urs_cookies --auth-no-challenge=on --keep-session-cookies --content-disposition -i <url.txt>
Meanwhile before step 7 two things need to be done. One, you need to just create this file ~/.urs_cookies and the second is that you have to authorize the data that you are downloading.
