MLS/Aura Near-Real-Time L2 Carbon Monoxide (CO) Mixing Ratio V003 ML2CO_NRT at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_ML2CO_NRT_V003
Abstract: ML2CO_NRT is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) Near-Real-Time (NRT) product for carbon monoxide (CO). This product contains daily CO profiles taken from the 640 GHz band. The most recent 7 days of data are available. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82° to +82° latitude), with each profile spaced 1.5° or ~165 km along the orbit track (roughly 15 orbits per day). The recommended useful ... vertical range of NRT Carbon Monoxide profiles is 215 - 0.00464 hPa. There are about 96 NRT files per day containing roughly 15 minutes or less of data each.
Before using these data, please download both the MLS version 3.4 NRT User Guide which describes the NRT algorithm and data quality, as well as the MLS Level-2 Data Quality Document for Standard Products which describes the caveats for using MLS CO data. MLS documentation can be found at http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/additional/documentation/.

Quality The Dates provided in temporal coverage are approximate only, and represent the beginning and end of the 2005 - 2008 Antarctic seasons. The latitudes and longitudes provided in spatial coverage are approximate only.
This project only dealt with the development of a technique, and Antarctic trials or data collection never took place.
