Data Assimilation and Reanalysis This presentation introduces the Data Assimilation and Reanalysis principle, then details the NASA Modern-Era Retrospective analysis for Research and Applications Version 2 (MERRA-2). The MERRA-2 is atmospheric reanalysis data spanning 1980 to the present. It has been produced by the NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and is distributed by the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC).

In this presentation, I will introduce the MERRA-2 datasets associated with aerosol and air quality studies and use case studies to demonstrate the data tools developed at GES DISC to analyze and visualize MERRA-2 data, such as Giovanni and Jupyter Python notebook.
