February 2014 issue of The Giovanni News is online


The February  2014 issue of The Giovanni News is now online. This issue has three feature articles: 

  • Research Highlight:  Are heavy rain events happening more frequently in Europe due to climate change? Or, in some regions, are they actually happening less frequently? That’s the question that Millán M. Millán examined in a paper that is in press (but already available online) for the Journal of Hydrology. Millán examined field meteorological data from 1974-2011 to address the question.  Giovanni was used to examine the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectro-radiometer (MODIS) water vapor data product.
  • New additions to Giovanni publications list, September-December 2013 :    Giovanni was used in a total of 214 peer-reviewed science journal papers in 2014, and the total number of publications counted since 2003 is now 859.  One of the papers in this most recent compilation, authored by Zu, Bahadur, Zhao, and Leung, examined the radiative forcing of aerosols containing carbon over the state of California. 
  • Giovanni-4 Development Update:  Giovanni-4 is about to release a new analysis capability that has been on the top of the request list for a long time:  seasonal or monthly time-series.  This new capability allows the creation of multi-year time-series plots for the same month in consecutive years, or the same season in consecutive years.  The example plot shows autumnal precipitation variability in the southeastern United States.
