Abstract: A Case Study of Convective Transport of Trace Gases and Air Pollutants into the Lower Stratosphere Examined in Giovanni

2006 AGU Fall Meeting, December 11-15, San Francisco, CA

A Case Study of Convective Transport of Trace Gases and Air Pollutants into the Lower Stratosphere Examined in Giovanni

Suraiya P. Ahmad, Gregory G. Leptoukh, James E. Johnson, Irina V. Gerasimov, and Steven J. Kempler

Giovanni is the Web-based on-line data exploration and visualization tool that provides an easy access to the long-term datasets of atmospheric measurements from the past and current satellite missions (e.g. Aura OMI, MLS and HIRDLS, Aqua AIRS and MODIS, TOMS, UARS HALOE, TRMM) and data from assimilation models that are archived at the Goddard Earth Sciences Data Information Services Center (GES DISC). Giovanni has many built-in data analysis capabilities. Users do not need to learn data formats or retrieve large datasets and process it. One can examine and assess various geophysical phenomena interactively. In this presentation we demonstrate Giovanni data exploration capabilities by examining the convective transport of trace gases and air pollutants (water vapor, ozone, CO, NO2, etc) into the lower stratosphere, and seasonal variability of aerosols, cloud and precipitation, over the Tibetan Plateau and South Asian region.
