The Goddard Earth Science (GES) Data and Information Service Center (DISC) is making some of its data available on Google Earth to facilitate scientific research. Our NASA imagery includes two dimensional (2D) flat data and three dimensional (3D) vertical data. An innovative solution integrates the vertical data from A-Train constellation satellites CloudSat, CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation), and Aqua (mainly MODIS and AIRS products) and campaign missions into Google Earth to vividly expose cloud, aerosol, and H2O characteristics and atmospheric temperature profile in the form of curtain along the satellite orbit.
