Announcing the 2nd Class of the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame

12 images selected for scientific interest and graphic presentation

Announcing the 2nd Class of the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame

Certificate awarded to Kang et al. for the image selected to the 2nd Class of the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame. Their image displayed maps created with Giovanni of MODIS aerosol optical depth and cloud data over China.

Announcing the 2nd Class of the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame


The February 2016 issue of The Giovanni News contains the award citations for each image selected for the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame. Every two years, images published in journal papers or generated by members of the Giovanni user community are examined for both their scientific interest and clarity of graphic presentation. The most noteworthy images are selected for the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame. Some images are selected for their relationship to newsworthy geophysical events, and others are selected as exemplary demonstrations of the use of the Giovanni system for scientific research.


Two years ago, the 12 images selected for the Inaugural Class of the Giovanni Image Hall of Fame were published in the January 2014 issue of The Giovanni News. The 2nd Class also has 12 images. Each image is cited for its particular significance. A certificate noting the selection was sent to the first author of each paper that included the selected image. One of the 12 images was created and directly contributed by Keith Potts, who also had an image selected for the Inaugural Class.
