Summary
Abstract: This is the AIRS mid-tropospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Level 3 8-day Gridded Retrieval, from the AIRS and AMSU instruments on board of Aqua satellite. It is a 8-day gridded data, at 2.5x2 deg (lon)x(lat) grid cell size. The data is in mole fraction units (data x 10^6 =ppm in volume). This is a total tropospheric column property. The file format is HDF-EOS 2.12 corresponding to HDF4.
