226 scientific publications citing the Giovanni system were counted in 2014


Each year the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) compiles citations of science journal papers that indicate the use of the Geospatial Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure (Giovanni) system. Since 2004, the first year Giovanni was cited (in three research papers), the number of such papers has increased every year. In 2014, this trend continued, with a count of 226 papers accrued by the end of December. The total number of publications of research which used Giovanni, including the first three from 2004, now stands at 1,086.

In the process of making this compilation, many additional uses of Giovanni have been encountered.  Its use has been seen reported in dissertations and theses, many different kinds of public and private reports, conference and meeting proceedings, and slides and posters shown at scientific meetings.

Below are short summaries of five papers from the most recent update, followed by the list of new publications appearing in July-December 2014, with links to the abstracts of each paper. The actual availability of the papers depends on institutional subscriptions to the journals. Libraries, particularly in academia and government, are likely to have subscriptions to many of these journals, allowing readers to download the full version of the publications. In some cases, only a PDF version of a preprint,  a pre-publication draft,  or an “in press” version of an accepted paper is available at this time.

  • Marine biologists have wondered and speculated about where baby sea turtles go after they swim boldly into the ocean following hatching on the beach. However, until now, it has been extremely difficult to track these little turtles. Mansfield et al. described the use of small solar-powered satellite transmitters to follow the movements of juvenile loggerhead turtles. These transmitters have helped determine where the turtles live as they forage and grow.  Reminiscent of the friendly turtles in Finding Nemo, the young turtles move rapidly when they surf the currents circling the North Atlantic Gyre. They also prefer to stay in warm, clear offshore waters that provide a thermal benefit and also protective cover (like the floating Sargassum plant) to shield them from predators, which makes the Sargasso Sea an ideal environment. (Mansfield, K.L., Wyneken, J., Porter, W.P., and Luo, J. (2014) First satellite tracks of neonate sea turtles redefine the ‘lost years’ oceanic niche. Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 281: 20133039. doi:10.1098/rspb.2013.3039.)  [For more on this research, read the Science magazine article “Where sea turtles spend their lost years”. ]
  • The vegetation requirement for feeding livestock in the sub-Saharan Sahel region of Africa is a main factor determining the population of livestock that the region can support. Turner et al. used the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) to evaluate the factors determining the optimum distances livestock travel to find green vegetation in this region. (Turner, M.D., Butt, B., Singh, A., Brottem, L., Ayantunde, A., and Gerard, B. (2014) Variation in vegetation cover and livestock mobility needs in Sahelian West Africa. Journal of Land Use Science, doi:10.1080/1747423X.2014.965280.)
  • Winter’s Tale was a recently-released romantic-fantasy movie, but in Winter Tales: the dark side of planktonic life, the authors were concerned with the lives of plankton during the dark months of winter in northern polar regions. They determined that some photosynthetic organisms, such as dinoflagellates, can survive through the low sunlight conditions of winter. They also determined that predatory zooplankton don’t go into a dormant state during winter, as had been previously believed, but apparently continue to feed. (Blachowiak-Samolyk, K., Wiktor, J.M., Hegseth, E.N., Wold, A., Falk-Petersen, S., and Kubiszyn, A.M. (2014) Winter Tales: the dark side of planktonic life. Polar Biology, Special 'Polar Night' Issue, 1-14.)
  • Because the NASA GES DISC archives data from both the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and its successor, the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, the use of these precipitation data is of particular interest. Satya Prakash and his co-authors, from the National Centre for Medium Range Forecasting of India and the India Meteorological Department, compared two versions of the TRMM Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis data product (TMPA-3B42) covering the time period of the Southwest Monsoon. They found that Version 7 of the data product had reduced biases and improved estimation of rainfall amounts for the summer monsoon. The authors concluded that Version 7 was a considerable improvement over Version 6. (Prakash, S., Mitra, A., Momin, I., Pai, D., Rajagopal, E., and Basu, S. (2014) Comparison of TMPA-3B42 versions 6 and 7 precipitation products with gauge based data over India for the South-West Monsoon period. Journal of Hydrometeorology, in press, doi:10.1175/JHM-D-14-0024.1.)
  • Aerosols in the atmosphere over the Indo-Gangetic Plain was the subject of a paper published by S. Kedia, S. Ramachandran, B.N. Holben, and S.N. Tripathi. (“B.N. Holben” is Brent Holben of Goddard Space Flight Center, who leads the AERONET program.) One important result of this research was the observation of strong seasonal variability in aerosol optical depth (AOD), with increased values observed in winter and during the pre-monsoon season. The authors examined the distribution of absorbing aerosols of various types, including black carbon and dust. (Kedia, S., Ramachandran, S., Holben, B.N., and Tripathi, S.N., (2014) Quantification of aerosol type, and sources of aerosols over the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Atmospheric Environment, 98, 607-619, doi:10.1016/j.atmosenv.2014.09.022.)
