New additions to Giovanni publications list, September-December 2013
Giovanni was reported used in more than 200 peer-reviewed citations in 2013
MODIS-Aqua image of the delta of the Mississippi River and Atchafalaya Rivers, on the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico, acquired April 7, 2009. Giovanni was used to study the nutrient and carbon dynamics of this complex system.
An end-of-year compilation of scientific research publications of studies that used the NASA Giovanni (Geospatial Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure) system garnered 81 new entries for the 2013 list. These additions brought the total for the year to 214, substantially exceeding the 185 counted in 2012. The total number of peer-reviewed publications since 2003 now stands at 859. In addition to the peer-reviewed category, which represents the highest level of scientific discourse, Giovanni has also been reported being used in many other types of communications, such as Ph.D. dissertations, Masters theses, government agency reports, papers published with meeting proceedings, and both talks and posters presented at scientific meetings.
Listed below are some highlights from this update, followed by 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 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 an "in press" or accepted paper is available at this time.
- Many people know that radar stands for Radio Detection and Ranging, but how many people know what sodar means? Sodar stands for Sonic Detection and Ranging and includes instruments that use sound waves to measure atmospheric turbulence, which indicates wind speeds. Murthy, Latha, and Sreeja employed sodar and Giovanni in their study of a boundary layer jet on the lee side of the Western Ghats in India, published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics.
- Air pollution in California has been in the news recently, as it has been determined that about 10% of the pollution in California has been transported over the Pacific Ocean from China. Carbon pollutants generated locally in California, and also from distant places like China, will have effects on incoming solar radiation. These radiative were described by researchers from Scripps Institute of Oceanography and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.
- Marisa C. Eisenberg of the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at The Ohio State University led a group of researchers examining rainfall and cholera dynamics in Haiti, the results of which were published in Epidemics.
- Steven Lohrenz was the first author of a book chapter in Biogeochemical Dynamics at Major River-Coastal Interfaces: Linkages with Global Change that described the nutrient and carbon dynamics of the Mississippi-Atchafalaya river system.
- In the journal, Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health, Daneshvar, Tavousi, and Khosravi documented the atmospheric precursors to the 7.8 magnitude North Saravan earthquake in southeast Iran.
- P.A. Dinis led a group that used Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) data for risk assessment in Angola. This paper was published in Estudos do Quaternário.
- Sergei Sitnov’s name once again appeared in the list, this time in Advances in Meteorology as first author of a contribution that researched a water vapor plume over eastern Europe during an atmospheric blocking event occurring in the summer of 2010.
- It seems like every winter there are news articles warning about the impending flu season. The weather definitely does play a part in the occurrence of influenza, as reported by Radina Soebiyanto and Richard Kiang of Goddard Space Flight Center in Geocarto International.
