OMI/Aura Chlorine Dioxide (OClO) Total Column 1-orbit L2 Swath 13x24 km V003 (OMOCLO) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_OMOCLO_V003
Abstract: The collection-3 Chlorine Dioxide Product OMOCLO from the Aura-OMI, is now available (http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/OMI/omoclo_v003.shtml) from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) for the public access.
The Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) was launched aboard the EOS-Aura satellite on July 15, 2004 (1:38 pm equator crossing time, ascending ... mode). OMI with its 2600 km viewing swath width provides almost daily global coverage. OMI is a contribution of the Netherlands Space Office (NSO) in collaboration with Finish Meterological Institute (FMI), to the US EOS-Aura Mission. The principal investigator (Dr. Pieternel Levelt) institute is the KNMI (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute). OMI is designed to monitor stratospheric and tropospheric ozone, clouds, aerosols and smoke from biomass burning, SO2, and key tropospheric pollutants (HCHO, NO2) and ozone depleting gases (BrO and OClO). OMI sensor counts, calibrated and geolocated radiances, and all derived geophysical atmospheric products are archived at the NASA Goddard DAAC.
The shortname for this Level-2 OMI total column OClO product is OMOCLO and the algorithm leads for this product are the US OMI scientists Dr. Kelly Chance (email@example.com) and Dr. Thomas Kurosu (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center, Cambridge, MA.
The OMOCLO product contains slant column OClO, standard erros (rms and sigma), quality flags, geolocation and other ancillary information.
OMOCLO files are stored in EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains data from the day lit portion of an orbit (~53 minutes). There are approximately 14 orbits per day. The maximum file size for the OMOCLO data product is about 20 Mbytes.
A list of tools for browsing and extracting data from these files can
be found at: http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/tools.shtml
A short OMOCLO Readme Document that includes brief algorithm
description and documents that provides known data quality related
issues are available from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center site:
