OMI/Aura Ozone (O3) Total Column Daily L2 Global 0.25 deg Lat/Lon Grid V003 [OMTO3G] at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_OMTO3G_V003
Abstract: The OMI/Aura Level-2G Total Column Ozone Data Product OMTO3G (Version 003) is made available ( http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/OMI/omto3g_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 Agency for Aerospace Programs (NIVR)in collaboration with Finish Meterological Institute (FMI), to the US EOS-Aura Mission. The principal investigator's (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 from volcanic eruptions, and key tropospheric pollutants (HCHO, NO2) and ozone depleting gases (OClO and BrO).
OMI sensor counts, calibrated and geolocated radiances, and all derived geophysical atmospheric products are also available from the NASA GES DISC.
OMI provides two total column ozone products OMTO3 and OMDOAO3 at the pixel resolution (13 x 24 km at nadir) that are based on two different algorithms. This Level-2G daily global gridded total column ozone product OMTO3G is based on the pixel level OMI Level-2 Total Ozone Product OMTO3. The OMTO3 product is based on enhanced TOMS version-8 algorithm that essentially uses the ultraviolet radiance data at 317.5 and 331.2 nm.
OMTO3G data product is a special Level-2 Global Gridded Product where pixel level data are binned into 0.25x0.25 degree global grids. It contains the data for all L2 scenes that have observation time between UTC times of 00:00:00 and 23:59:59.9999. All data pixels that fall in a grid box are saved Without Averaging. Scientist can apply data filtering scheme of their choice and create new gridded products. The GES DISC developed interactive toolGiovanni(http://giovanni.gsfc.nasa.gov/) provides web based capabilities to browse and explore these data.
OMTO3G product files are stored in Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each daily data file contains data from the day lit portion of the orbits (~14 orbits) and is roughly 150 MB in size. A list of tools for browsing and extracting data from these files can be found from the site http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/tools.shtml.
The OMTO3G data product contains almost all parameters that are contained in the OMTO3. For example, in addition to the total column ozone it also contains UV aerosol index, cloud fraction, cloud pressure, terrain height, geolocation, solar and satellite viewing angles, and extensive quality flags.
