Abstract:
The OMI science team produces two Level-3 Aura/OMI Global Aerosol Data Products OMAERUVd (1deg Lat/Lon grids) and OMAEROe (0.25deg Lat/Lon grids). The OMAERUVd product is based on the Level-2 OMAERUV product that uses the near-UV algorithm whereas the OMAERO product is based on the multi-wavelength algorithm that uses up to 20 wavelength bands between 331 nm and 500 nm. OMAERO retrieval algorithm is developed by the KNMI OMI Team Scientists. Drs. Deborah Stein-Zweers, Martin Sneep and Pepijn Veefkind are now the key investigators of this product. The Level-3 OMAEROe product selects best aerosol value from the Leve2G good quality data that are reported in each grid. The selection criteria is based on the shortest optical path length (=Secant of solar zenith angle+Secant of view zenith angle). OMAEROe files are stored in EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains daily data from approximately 15 orbits. The maximum file size for the OMAEROe data product is about 7 Mbytes. A list of tools for browsing and extracting data from these files can be found from the site http://daac.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/tools.shtml. The GES DISC developed interactive tool Giovanni (http://giovanni.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ) provides web based data analysis capabilities for atmospheric products. A short Readme Document that provides brief algorithm description, data quality related issues of OMAERO (the original Level-2 data product used in creating Level-3 product), is available from the sites http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/OMI/omaeroe_v003.shtml and http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/OMI/omaero_v003.shtml The Ozone Monitoring Instrument(OMI) flying on the EOS-Aura satellite (launched in July 2004), provides daily global measurements of four important US Environmental Protection Agency's criteria pollutants (Ozone, Nitrogen dioxide, Sulfur dioxide and Aerosols from biomass burning and industrial emissions), HCHO, BrO, OClO and surface UV irradiance. 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). For more information on Ozone Monitoring Instrument and derived atmospheric data products, please visit the OMI-Aura sites: http://www.knmi.nl/omi/research/documents/ http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aura/ http://aura.gsfc.nasa.gov/ Atmospheric Composition data from Aura and other satellite sensors can be downloaded from the following sites: http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/acdisc/ http://mirador.gsfc.nasa.gov/
