With three months left, 2010 count of Giovanni publications exceeds 2009
New peer-reviewed journal publications span the globe on atmospheric, oceanic, and terrestrial topics
MODIS sea surface temperatures for the Hudson Bay region of Canada, July-September 2006 (temperature range 0-10 degrees C).
Based on the most recent update to the list of publications utilizing Giovanni, researchers are discovering a constant variety of science with the GES DISC's innovative earth observation data research tool. At the beginning of October 2010 – with three months left in the calendar year – 88 journal papers been published in which Giovanni imagery or data analyses appear. This number exceeds by one the full count of peer-reviewed publications in 2009, emphasizing a continuing annual increase in the number of publications where Giovanni was used.
Giovanni's ease of use enables researchers to rapidly generate illustrative imagery and accurate analyses with remote-sensing data from NASA missions and programs. Furthermore, the count of peer-reviewed publication references that can be found online is only a leading indicator of how integral Giovanni has become to Earth science research around the world – broader searches of the World Wide Web find that Giovanni is used frequently in conference presentations and posters, proceedings papers, technical and government reports, Master's theses, Ph.D. dissertations, Earth and environmental science classes (in both traditonal classroom settings and online), and popular science articles.
The October update features twenty-three new citations, illustrating a wide variety of scientific inquiry. The selected articles below indicate the range of topics being investigated through the use of Giovanni.
