Abstract

In Autumn 1995, the Goddard Distributed Active Archive Center (GDAAC) compiled the Climatology Interdisciplinary Data Collection (CIDC) to facilitate interdisciplinary studies related to climate and global change. This data collection has been produced in collaboration with the Center for Earth Observing and Space Research (CEOSR), Institute for Computational Sciences and Informatics (CSI), and George Mason University. It was designed for the study of global change, seasonal to interannual climate change, and other phenomena that require from one to dozens of interacting parameters. This dataset contains volume 2 atmospheric dynamics measurements.

Title DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) satellite
Abstract This computation involved: DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) satellite. The Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) spacecraft was launched on February 14, 1980, near the height of the solar cycle, to enable the solar phsyics community to examine, in more physically meaningful detail than ever before, the most violent aspect of solar activity: flares. SMM recorded its final data in November, 1989.

Title GEOS-1 multiyear assimilation deployed on NASA Global Modelling and Assimilation Office (GMAO)
Abstract This computation involved: GEOS-1 multiyear assimilation deployed on NASA Global Modelling and Assimilation Office (GMAO). GEOS-1 is an assimilation system developped by NASA GMAO to produce the 4D Assimilation Monthly Mean Subset Data available on the CIDC cd-rom. The Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) was formed from the Data Assimilation Office (DAO), which focused on atmospheric modeling and data assimilation, and the NASA Seasonal-to-Interannual Prediction Project (NSIPP), which focused on coupled (ocean-atmosphere-land-surface) climate modeling and prediction and on ocean and land data assimilation. In addition to developing, integrating and using these systems for research, GMAO routinely generates products for use by some of NASA's instrument teams and by the U.S. operational climate prediction centers (NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the International Research Institute for Climate Prediction (IRI)). GMAO addresses the optimal use of satellite and in situ observations to generate research quality data sets for climate analyses and also for weather, climate, and air quality forecasts. Their modeling and assimilation research includes coupling to and assimilation of atmospheric chemistry and ocean biology and carbon.
