ML2N2O_NRT is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) Near-Real-Time (NRT) product for nitrous oxide (N2O). This product contains daily N2O 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 Nitrous Oxide profiles is 100 - 0.464 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 N2O data.
