We are pleased to report that the latest update to NASA’s Giovanni visualization portal now includes MODIS Collection 6 aerosol products, including Deep Blue. Giovanni provides a quick and easy way to look at our Level 3 data sets, as well as many other geophysical data sets, without having to download the files yourself.
The accompanying image shows an example of what can be done with Giovanni. This shows a map of aerosol optical depth (AOD) during a Saharan dust storm. The image was created from a combination of the Deep Blue and Dark Target data sets, using measurements collected by MODIS Terra during March 4-5 2004.
