A-Train Data Depot: Bringing Atmospheric Measurements Together

Savtchenko, A., R. Kummerer, P. Smith, A. Gopalan, S. J. Kempler, and G. G. Leptoukh (2008), A-Train Data Depot: Bringing Atmospheric Measurements Together, IEEE Trans. Geosci. Remote Sens., 46, 2788-2795, doi:10.1109/TGRS.2008.917600.

This paper describes the satellite data processing and services that constitute current functionalities of the A-Train Data Depot. We first provide a brief introduction to the original geometrical intricacies of the platforms and instruments of the A-Train constellation and then proceed with a description of our A-Train collocation-processing algorithm that provides subsets that facilitate synergistic use of the various instruments. Finally, we present some sample image products from our web-based Giovanni tool which allows users to display, compare, and download coregistered A-Train-related data.
