AIRS Online Visualization and Analysis

AIRS Global 1.0° x 1.0° (2.5° x 2.0° for CO2) Monthly Level-3 Products

To build on the success of the previous version of the Giovanni online analysis tool, this Giovanni-3 interface has been redesigned to improve visualization and analysis of the AIRS Global 1.0° x 1.0° (except CO2 which is in 2.5° x 2.0° lonxlat bin) monthly Level-3 Products. By choosing various data services below, users can create area plots, time series plots, Hovmöller diagrams and animations or compare different flavors of AIRS Level-3 data. Results can be downloaded either in HDF or ASCII format. Please check data availability to ensure a successful run.

Select Levels for '(3D)' Parameters
• For 'vertical' (pressure) plots using '(3D)' parameters, select a Lower/Upper Level range.
• For 'horizontal' (lat-lon) plots, select only one Level (i.e., Upper Level = Lower Level).
NOTE:  Humidity profiles, H2O* and relative humidity* (3D), are LAYER variables; they represent the mean value of the corresponding entity in the layer enclosed within indicated levels; e.g. a humidity entity selected at 500 mb represents the mean quantity in the layer 500-400 mb.
