The Solar Backscattered Ultra Violet (SBUV) from NOAA-14 Level-2 daily product (SBUV2N14L2) contains ozone nadir profile and
total column data from retrievals generated from the v8.6 SBUV algorithm. The v8.6 SBUV algorithm estimates the ozone nadir
profile and total column from SBUV measurements using 1) the Brion-Daumont-Malicet ozone cross sections, 2) an OMI-derived
cloud-height climatology, 3) a revised a priori ozone climatology, and 4) inter-instrument calibration based on comparisons
with no local time difference.
The SBUV2N14L2 product is written as daily files using the HDF5 format, with file sizes ranging from about 1 to 5 Mbytes.
Data are available from March 1995 through September 2006. The SBUV2N14L2 data product was used as input in creating the SBUV2N14L3zm
monthly zonal mean data product.
