Links to DICCE Giovanni variables in Giovanni-4: Monthly

Each link provides a Giovanni-4 search URL for the DICCE-G variable

 In this page, links to the data variables from the Data-enhanced Investigations for Climate Change Education (DICCE) Giovanni-3 portal are provided to the corresponding variable in Giovanni-4.   Each URL actually constitutes a search for that variable in Giovanni-4.  Once the variable is selected in the Giovanni-4 portal, the spatial, temporal, and visualization analysis method can be selected.  This page is for Monthly data variables.

red dice The "Information for Educators" links go to DICCE Extended Help documentation for each included data variable.



NASA Ocean Biogeochemical Model Assimilated Total Chlorophyll

Note:  This is a low spatial resolution data product available as daily and monthly data.  It is based on satellite data, and provides a "cloud free" view of ocean chlorophyll concentrations. It will be replaced on this page when higher resolution MODIS and SeaWiFS data are available in Giovanni-4, likely during September-December 2015.  The NOBM chlorophyll can be used to study large-scale regional and seasonal variability of ocean chlorophyll concentration.
