== Proposal ==
 These webbased tools let users display, analyze, and download earth science data interactively.
These tools help scientists quickly examine data to identify specific features, e.g. trends,
geographical distributions, etc., and determine whether a further study is needed. All of
the tools are designed and implemented to be general so that data from models, observation,
and reanalysis are processed and displayed in a unified way to facilitate fair comparisons.
The services prepare and display data as a colored map or an XY plot and allow users to download
the analyzed data. Basic visual capabilities include 1) displaying twodimensional variable
as a map, zonal mean, and time series 2) displaying threedimensional variable’s zonal mean,
a twodimensional slice at a specific altitude, and a vertical profile. General analysis can
be done using the difference, scatter plot, and conditional sampling services. All the tools
support display options for using linear or logarithmic scales and allow users to specify
a temporal range and months in a year. The source/input datasets for these tools are CMIP5
model outputs, Obs4MIP observational datasets, and ECMWF reanalysis datasets, are stored in
the tool server, and are selectable by a user through the web services.

+
 Conditional sampling: This service lets user to sort a physical quantity of two or dimensions
according to the values of another variable (environmental condition, e.g. SST) which may
be a twodimensional variable or a slice of a threedimensional variable at a specific altitude.
For a two dimensional quantity, the plot is displayed an XY plot, and for a twodimensional
quantity, plot is displayed as a coloredmap.
