ready Hierarchical Data Format (HDF)

Abbreviation: HDF5

General Information
HDF5 is a data model, library, and file format for storing and managing data. It supports an unlimited variety of datatypes, and is designed for flexible and efficient I/O and for high volume and complex data. HDF5 is portable and is extensible, allowing applications to evolve in their use of HDF5. The HDF5 Technology suite includes tools and applications for managing, manipulating, viewing, and analyzing data in the HDF5 format.

National Snow and Ice Data Center Data Portal
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) contains data on the cryosphere, which includes snow, ice, glaciers, frozen ground, and climate interactions. NSIDC manages and distributes scientific data, creates tools for data access, supports data users, performs scientific research, and educates the public about the cryosphere. Data are from satellites and field observations, and are from NASA, NSF, NOAA, and other programs. All data are available free of charge.
