Newest additions to Giovanni publications list

     The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) has completed the second 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, 73 journal papers were added to the list, which brings the total number of peer-reviewed publications on work using Giovanni to a total of 774 since 2004.

     Listed below are some highlights from the 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 publication. In some cases, only a PDF version of an "in press" or accepted paper is available at this time.

  •          Hao Lin of the Key Laboratory of Geographic Information Science at East China Normal University in Shanghai, China and co-authors described a geospatial Web portal for greenhouse gas data derived from remote sensing images in Frontiers of Earth Science.
  •          Longtao Wu, Hui Su, and Jonathan H. Jiang, in the Journal of Geophysical Research:  Atmospheres, examined the impact of atmospheric aerosols on the precipitation patterns of the East Asian summer monsoon.
  •          In the International Journal of Remote Sensing, Biswadip Gharai, Subin Jose, and D.V. Mahalakshmi provided a case study of an intense dust storm over India occurring in June 2010, analyzed with MODIS and OMI data.

  •          Stanislaus Rebaudet of Aix-Marseille University and his colleagues, writing in PLoS Currents: Outbreaks, described a potential campaign to end the cholera outbreak in Haiti by focusing on remnant outbreaks during the dry season. This paper was highlighted in a recent issue of The Giovanni News newsletter.
  •          Paul A. Kucera of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado and Bozena Lapeta of the National Research Institute (NRI) in Krakow, Poland summarized scientific efforts to improve the quantification of global precipitation, in an article for the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
  •          The dangers to young skiing athletes of excess exposure to strong solar ultraviolet radiation were estimated by María-Antonia Serrano, Javier Cañada, and Juan Carlos Moreno, who are members of the Valencia Solar Radiation Research Group. Their paper appeared in Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences.
  •          In 2008, an intense bloom of the phytoplankton species Cochlodinium polykrikoides invaded the Sea of Oman. In the journal Estuaries and Coasts, a group of researchers (Adnan R. Al-Azri, Sergey A. Piontkovski, Khalid A. Al-Hashmi, Joaquim I. Goes, Helga do R. Gomes, and Patricia M. Glibert) analyzed the combination of physical and chemical oceanographic conditions that contributed to the formation of this event.
  •          Marcelo Biudes of the Universidade Federale de Mato Grosso, Brazil headed a research team that compared estimates of leaf area index in transitional and seasonal flooded Brazilian forests. Their work was published in the International Journal of Biometeorology.
