Discover Earth Website

I found Discover Earth .
The primary objective of the Distributed Information Services for Climate and Ocean Products and Visualizations for Earth Research (DISCOVER) Project is to provide highly accurate, long-term ocean and climate products suitable for the most demanding Earth research applications via easy-to-use display and data access tools.
There are many different datasets and viewing tools. I especialy liked the average temperatures based on the AMSU instrument. One can look at the daily temperature variations at different heights in the atmosphere, for different years, There was a dip in October of 2003 at 35km altitude which left me wondering...but I'll have to look into what goes into these averages.
