SO2 from volcanoes in Kamchatka, such as the eruption of Tolbachik volcano, influences cloud formation in Alaska, according to research performed using Giovanni.

New publications added to Giovanni publication list

The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) has completed the first 2013 update to the list of science journal papers citing the use of the NASA Giovanni (Geospatial Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure) system to conduct geoscience research. In this update, 58 journal papers were added to the list. This update increased the total number of publications to over 700 since 2004.

Listed below are some highlights from the update.   Below the highlights is the entire new publications list, with links to the abstracts of each paper.  The actual availability of the papers depends on institutional subscriptions to the journals.  Libraries, particularly academic and government libraries, are likely to have subscriptions to many of these journals, allowing readers to download the full version.  In some cases, only a PDF version of an "in press" or accepted paper is available at this time.

Highlights:

  • Christian Barthlott and Daniel J. Kirshbaum investigated how mountainous islands can initiate deep convection in the atmosphere, leading to precipitation events, in the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society.
  • In the journal Fisheries Oceanography, Garcia et al. investigated the influence of climate on the growth of larval bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean Sea, a fishery that is under critical stress due to overfishing.
  • Jouan et al. described the relationship between Arctic cloud formation on Alaska's North Slope and air masses with elevated sulfur dioxide (SO2) concentrations from both pollution and volcanic activity, in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions.
  • Rafael Morales-Baquero, Elvira Pulido-Villena, and Isabel Reche of the University of Granada, Spain, examined the chemistry of wet and dry deposition in southern Spain to determine if it has been modified by Saharan dust crossing the Mediterranean Sea, in Tellus B.
  • In the journal The Cryosphere, a large group of scientists led by A. Rabatel of the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Geophysique de l’Environnement in Grenoble, France investigated the state of tropical Andean glaciers over several centuries, attempting to put changes in these glaciers into the context of climate change.
  • A group from the University of Leicester, headed by E.J. Tebbs, researched the hydrology of Africa's Lake Natron, a unique alkali lake which is a well-known breeding area for lesser flamingos.
  • Maria Tzortziou of the University of Maryland's Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) led an investigation of how ozone and nitrogen dioxide vary in the atmosphere of the Chesapeake Bay's urbanized estuarine watershed.

 

In addition, Chapter 2 of the book Regional Environmental Changes in Siberia and Their Global Consequences, entitled "Development of information-computational infrastructure for environmental research in Siberia as a baseline component of the northern Eurasia Earth science partnership initiative (NEESPI) studies" featured several co-authors from the NASA GES DISC.  This chapter included a discussion of how NEESPI data was placed in the Giovanni system.
