The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) has developed an on-line web based data visualization and analysis system known as Giovanni for accessing EOS Aura satellite data. Aura was launched in July 2004 with four instruments designed to measure atmospheric trace gases, aerosols, and clouds. The four instruments include the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS), the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI), the High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS), and the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES). Currently, Giovanni provides easy access to data from the Aura MLS, OMI and HIRDLS instruments. Users can access ozone, NO2, SO2, aerosol, cloud, UVB surface irradiance, BrO, HCHO and OCLO data from the OMI instrument. Visualization services include 2-D maps, animated maps, time series with statistics, scatter plots, as well as latitude vs. time and longitude vs. time Hovmoller plots. New capabilities to display correlation maps, anomaly plots will be added to Giovanni. MLS vertical profiles of ozone, water vapor, temperature, BrO, ClO, CO, HCl, HCN, HNO3, HO2, HOCl, N2O, OH, along with cloud ice water content, relative humidity with respect to ice, and geopotential height are available to users. Zonal mean and global gridding services will be added to Giovanni for MLS data. HIRDLS vertical profiles of ozone, temperature, and HNO3 have also been recently added to Giovanni. Other parameters and services will be added as they become available. In the future, TES vertical profile data will be made available through Giovanni.
