OMI/Aura Level 2 Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) Trace Gas Column Data 1-Orbit Subset and Collocated Swath along CloudSat V003 (OMSO2_CPR) at GES DISC

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This is a CloudSat-collocated subset of the original product OMSO2, for the purposes of the A-Train mission. 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 of CloudSat. Even though collocated with CloudSat, this subset can serve many other A-Train applications.
