Next week's A-Train symposium has attracted the participation of several members of the GES DISC, including GES DISC Head Steve Kempler. The main reason for our staff to be in the city of jazz and crawdads is the GES DISC "A-Train Data Depot," where data from several of the A-Train satellite instruments are located for easy discovery and use. The ATDD provides several data sets subset for use by scientists using A-Train data.
Aijun Chen will be presenting a poster entitled "Visualization and Synergy of ATrain Earth Science Data on Google Earth." The subjec of Thomas Hearty's poster is "The AIRS Near Real Time (NRT) Data Products."
The GES DISC's innovative Giovanni system is another reason to be in New Orleans, as the system features data products from A-Train instruments, including the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite; the Ozone Measuring Instrument (OMI) on the Aura satellite; and the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarisation (CALIOP) on the CALIPSO satellite. Giovanni will be the subject of demonstrations for educators on Tuesday and Wednesday morning at the Symposium.
