GEOS-FP Weather Visualizations Updated


Beginning 10 January, 2018, the weather maps, datagrams and other output from the GMAO's GEOS-FP system are served in a new format. Plots are generated using a new, interactive Python-based framework named FLUID, developed within the GMAO. Along with this new capability, there are changes to the appearance of the plots, the menus that drive them, and the animation capabilities.

FLUID is implemented as a front-end framework upon systems provided by the NASA Center for Climate Computing (NCCS) at NASA's GSFC. This standard implementation is a result of collaborative development work between staff in the GMAO and NCCS.

Eventually, the FLUID package will be adapted to provide instances for the visualization of GMAO's seasonal prediction and reanalysis products. Another instance of FLUID will be focused on field-mission support using GEOS-FP analyses and forecasts.

Links from the GMAO's pages now take the user directly to the new displays, which open in a new tab. For the following few weeks, the link to GMAO's old-style plots will remain active at: .
