Abstract: The Aura-OMI Daily Gridded Surface UV Irradiance Product (OMUVBd) is now available from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) for the public access.

(The shortname for this Level-3 OMI Surface UVB product is OMUVBd_V003)

The algorithm team consists of FMI scientists Drs. J. Hovila, A. Arola and J. Tamminen.

The OMUVBd product contains global erythemally weighted daily dose and erythemal dose rate at local solar noon at 1.0x1.0 deg grids.

OMUVBd files are available in EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS) and TOMS-Like ASCII Format. Each file contains daily data from the day lit portion of the globe. The maximum file size for the OMUVBd data product is about 2 MBytes.
