Rainfall pattern of Super Typhoon Haiyan at 06Z on November 7, 2013. TMPA-RT precipitation data were plotted with Giovanni to create this image. The storm made a catastrophic landfall in the central Philippines just less than 24 hours later.

October-November 2013 issue of The Giovanni News is online

The October-November  2013 issue of The Giovanni News is now online. This issue has three feature articles:

 

  • Research Highlight:  Sea surface temperature analysis performed with Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data shows that a point in the ocean near the Galapagos Islands can be a reliable indicator of the El NiƱo - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) state of the Pacific Ocean.  This research by Tarakanov and Borisova was published in the journal Environmental Modelling and Software
  • Giovanni Image of the Month:   A superimposition of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis - Real Time (TMPA-RT) 3-hourly 3B42 data product and a MODIS true-color image of Super Typhoon Haiyan demonstrates the correlation between heavy rainfall and cloud circulation patterns in this powerful storm. 
  • Giovanni-4 Development Update: This update describes Giovanni 4.4, including new Heat Stress and Wind Stress magnitude data variables and the new vector plot capability.
