04.01.2009 -KML files are available for AIRS level 3 version 5 monthly data (Jan. 2007 -- Dec. 2008)

Only is a very small root KML file required to be downloaded and opened in Google Earth. This root KML file is the top of a pyrimad. 15 kinds of phyiscal parameters for each month are visualized and available. Related data and their metadata are also available for downloading and browsing. The root KML file is here.

06.12.2007 - Atmospheric TemperatureProfile (TP) from MODIS/Aqua is displayed in the form of vertical orbit curtain on Google Earth
Atmopsheric temperature vertical data from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) at Aqua are rendered as a vertical orbit curtain on Google Earth. General public and professionals can overlay the curtain with CloudSat and CALIPSO data at one orbit curtain.

06.03.2007 - CloudSat Vertical Data on Google Earth
CloudSat vertical data profiles are rendered in the form of3D orbit curtain on Google Earth through the GIOVANNI system. This is the first vertical 3D curtain for depicting the vertical geospatial data. It vividly displays the vertical structure of the cloud on Google Earth. The revealed physical parameters include cloud reflectiviy (dBZ), recieved echo power (REP).
