2008 Fall AGU Meeting: Climate, models, and oceans presentations

Thirty years of meteorological data; 6 years of AIRS data; a new system for 8 years of IR data from geostationary satellites; 11 years of ocean color data over the Chesapeake Bay--the GES DISC will describe its tools and data for studying climate at the Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco.

Thirty years of meteorological data; 6 years of AIRS data; a new system for 8 years of IR data from geostationary satellites; 11 years of ocean color data over the Chesapeake Bay--the GES DISC will describe its tools and data for studying climate at the Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco.
 

Four presentations at the 2008 AGU Fall Meeting are related to climate and weather, meteorological modeling, or coastal oceanic processes. 

"Modern Era Retrospective-analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA) Data and Services at the GES DISC"  provides an overview of the new data archive and related Giovanni instance which will provide data and visualization services for this 30-year dataset, created by NASA's Global Modeling and Assimiliation Office (GMAO).   MERRA data will be available from the Modeling DISC (MDISC) portable and will also be available for online analysis in Giovanni.   The emphasis of MERRA data is on the global hydrologic cycle.    Authors:  Steve Berrick, Suhung Shen, and Dana Ostrenga.

This presentation is a poster scheduled for Monday, December 15, at 1340, in Moscone Center Hall D, Session A13A, poster 0225.

" AIRS Data Service at NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services (GES DISC) and Its Application to Climate Change Study" describes the six-year data set from the AIRS instrument on the Aqua satellite available at the GES DISC.   AIRS data include cloud parameters, temperature, humidity, and radiation.   The use of this data for the study of long- and short-term variability is demonstrated.   Authors:   Young-In Won, Bruce Vollmer, Michael Theobald, and Xin-Min Hua.

This presentation is a poster scheduled for Friday, December 19, at 1340, in Moscone Center Hall D, Session A53F, poster 0337.

"Online Visualization and Analysis of Merged Global Geostationary Satellite Infrared Dataset" is about the new Global Image Viewer (GIVER) capability in a prototype online system used to access 8 years (4.5 Terabytes) of global geostationary satellite infrared observations of the Earth.  The data is relevant to Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) data and can potentially be used to verify climate model simulations.   Authors:  Zhong Liu, Dana Ostrenga, Greg Leptoukh, and Amita Mehta. 

This presentation is a poster scheduled for Friday, December 19, at 1340, in Moscone Center Hall D, Session A53C, poster 0280.

"Spatial and Temporal Variability Analyses of the Chesapeake Bay Outflow Plume with Satellite Ocean Color Data" will present a multi-year characterization of the discharge plume from the Chesapeake Bay into the coastal Atlantic Ocean utilizing 11 years of SeaWiFS ocean color data and 6 years of MODIS-Aqua ocean color data.   Analysis of the spatial and temporal dynamics of the plume was performed with the Giovanni system.  Authors:   Yong Zhang, Greg Leptoukh, Suhung Shen, and James Acker.

This is an oral presentation scheduled for Wednesday, December 17, at 1205, in Moscone Center Room 2020, session OS32B.
