Going Further


Animate a different time interval of images from NEO AOT which has daily and 8-day average data also. This might work well to look at phenomena like a volcanic eruption whose plume is less visible in the monthly average.

Other Datasets

Some additional combinations of NEO datasets to explore include the following:

  • Net Radiation, Snow Cover and Solar Insolation
  • Sea Surface Temperature and Net Primary Productivity
  • Sea surface temperature and water vapor
  • Sea Surface Temperature and Chlorophyll Concentration
  • Reflected Short Wave Radiation and Cloud Cover (cirrus or total)
  • Sea Ice and Snow Cover over the course of a season
  • Solar Insolation (incoming radiation) and Reflected Short Wave Radiation
  • Sea Surface Temperature, Water Vapor, Outgoing Long Wave Radiation, and leaf cover for summer versus winter in the Northern Hemisphere

Other Techniques

Additional supporting Data

Use fire maps, areas with known fires, to further test your "set of rules" for CO and particulates under different circumstances.

Other Tools

Import and overlay some of the NEO datasets into Google Earth.
