OMI/Aura Cloud Pressure and Fraction (O2-O2 Absorption) 200-km swath subset along CloudSat track V003 (OMCLDO2_CPR) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_OMCLDO2_CPR_V003
Abstract: This the OMI/Aura Cloud Pressure and Fraction (O2-O2 Absorption) subset along CloudSat track, for the purposes of the A-Train mission. The original product uses the DOAS technique method. This level-2 global cloud product at the pixel resolution (13x24 km2 at nadir) is based on the spectral fitting of O2-O2 absorption band at 477 nm using DOAS technique. The goal of the subset is to select and ... return OMI data that are within +-100 km across the CloudSat track. I.e. the resultant OMI subset swath is sought to be about 200 km cross-track. This product contains cloud pressure, cloud fraction, slant column O2-O2 & O3, Ring coefficients, uncertainties in derived parameters, terrain and geolocation information, solar and satellite viewing angles, and quality flags. Even though collocated with CloudSat, this subset can serve many other A-Train applications.

Quality The data have been acquired at 0.1 Hz. There will be the occasional invalid value such as temperatures being out of range.
This dataset has not been checked. Please verify the data before use.
Where data for a particular sensor do not exist for a particular time, the last known value is used unless the sensor has been disabled or has encountered an error. For example, some sensors only record data every minute, but the resolution for the underway dataset is 10 seconds, so the same value will be used 6 times a minute. No averages are taken for sensors that capture data at a rate other than every 10 seconds. Instead, each record will be a snapshot of each sensor at that time.
