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 biosphere, hydrology, surface temperature, ozone, greenhouse gases measurements.

Title Digitizing and processing of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Soil Map of the World deployed on Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS)
Abstract This computation involved: Digitizing and processing of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Soil Map of the World deployed on Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS). The original source maps are the Soil Map of the World, which was produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 10 volumes between 1970 and 1978. It provides the most detailed, globally consistent soil data. The Earth Sciences and Resource Institute (ESRI) digitized the data under contract to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the FAO in 1984. The EROS Data Center constructed the data sets that were later used to derive the global array of average slope. The Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) is a data management, systems development, and research field center for the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Geography Discipline.

Title SRB satellite Pinker algorithm using ISCCP-C1 and ERBE data deployed on NASA Langley Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC)
Abstract This computation involved: SRB satellite Pinker algorithm using ISCCP-C1 and ERBE data deployed on NASA Langley Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC). The primary data source is the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) C1 data product. Using the ISCCP C1 parameters as input, SRB results are generated using two different algorithms. The Pinker algorithm (developed jointly by Drs. R.T. Pinker and I. Laszlo form the University of Maryland) is a physical model which uses an iterative procedure based on delta-Eddington radiative transfer calculations. The Staylor algorithm (developed by Mr. W.F. Staylor from the NASA Langley Research Center) is a parameterized physical model in which both cloud and aerosol transmission characteristics have been separately tuned to historical data at various locations around the globe. Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) data are also used as input to the models. The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center is responsible for the processing, archival, and distribution of NASA Earth science data in the areas of radiation budget, clouds, aerosols, and tropospheric chemistry. The Data Center was established in 1991 to support the Earth Observing System (EOS) as part of NASA's Earth Science enterprise and the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and is one of several Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) sponsored by NASA as part of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS). The Data Center specializes in atmospheric data important to understanding the causes and processes of global climate change and the consequences of human activities on the climate.

Title DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Satellites
Abstract This computation involved: DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Satellites. DMSP satellites are used for strategic and tactical weather prediction to aid the U.S. military in planning operations at sea, on land and in the air. Equipped with a sophisticated sensor suite that can image visible and infrared cloud cover and measure precipitation, surface temperature, and soil moisture, the satellite collects specialized global meteorological, oceanographic, and solar-geophysical information in all weather conditions. The DMSP constellation comprises two spacecraft in near-polar orbits, C3 (command, control and communications), user terminals and weather centers.

Title UEA - Jones et al Monthly Surface air temperature anomalies data processing deployed on Climate Research Unit (CRU) at UEA
Abstract This computation involved: UEA - Jones et al Monthly Surface air temperature anomalies data processing deployed on Climate Research Unit (CRU) at UEA. Monthly Surface air temperature anomalies for the period 1851-1996 have been calculated by the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, using data from several sources ( Jones et al., 1986 a, b and c, and 1991). The Climatic Research Unit is widely recognised as one of the world's leading institutions concerned with the study of natural and anthropogenic climate change. Consisting of a staff of around thirty research scientists and students, the Unit has developed a number of the data sets widely used in climate research, including the global temperature record used to monitor the state of the climate system, as well as statistical software packages and climate models. It is located at the Univeristy of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, UK.
