Image of nitrogren dioxide(NO2) concentrations from fires and coal-burning power plants in New Mexico and Arizona. This image was generated with the NASA Giovanni system, and was averaged over the period June 27-29, 2011. NO2 data were acquired by the Ozone Measuring Instrument(OMI)on the Aura satellite. OMI data is archived at the NASA GES DISC, and is provided by KNMI, the Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Institut (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute)
The NASA GES DISC is located within the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. It provides access to a wide range of global climate data, concentrated primarily in the areas of atmospheric composition, atmospheric dynamics, global precipitation, and solar irradiance.
The DISC supports data from many heritage and EOS missions including Aqua, Aura, SORCE, TRMM, UARS, and Earth Probe (TOMS). The GES DISC also provides data subsetting, exploration, visualization, and access services.
GES DISC data sets can be accessed through the online Data Holdings page which provides several search and order methods, including the keyword-based Mirador and OpenDAP, http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/data-holdings. Access to GES DISC data is also available through the WIST data search-and-order system.
