Project Title: Consistent Long-Term Aerosol Data Records over Land and Ocean from SeaWIFS
PI Name: Christina Hsu
Project Description: One of the key components of NASAs Earth Science Research Strategy to better understand the complex nature of Earths climate is the determination of the global radiation balance. Comprehensive regional-to-global climate models (R/GCM) are playing an ever-greater role in addressing this issue. Because of their important role in modifying the radiative energy balance, the characteristics of aerosols, especially near their sources and sinks, are essential parameters to the R/GCMs. Many EOS era instruments (e.g., SeaWiFS, MODIS, MISR, etc.) are designed to provide such information with a high degree of fidelity.
Giovanni is a web-based application developed by the GES DISC that provides a simple and intuitive way to visualize, analyze, and access vast amounts of Earth science remote sensing data without having to download the data. Giovanni is comprised of a number of instances tailored to a specific scientific community including the following aerosol instances:
