Summary
Abstract: The Data Assimilation Office (DAO) at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight
Center produced a multi-year gridded global atmospheric data set for
use in climate research, including tropospheric chemistry
applications. The data, which are being made available to the
scientific community, are well-suited for climate research since they
are produced by a fixed assimilation ... View entire text
