OMI/Aura Level 1B VIS Zoom-in Geolocated Earthshine Radiances 1-orbit L2 Swath 13x12 km V003 (OML1BRVZ) at GES DISC
Entry ID: OML1BRVZ_003

[Get Data]


The Aura Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) Level-1B (L1B) Geo-located Earth View VIS Radiance, Zoom-in-Mode (OML1BRVZ) Version-3 product contains geo-located Earth view spectral radiances from the VIS detectors in the wavelength range of 349 to 504 nm using spectral and spatial zoom-in measurement modes. In zoom-in measurement mode, OMI observes 60 ground pixels (13 km x 24 km at nadir) across ...

The OML1BRVZ files are stored in the HDF4 based EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS). The radiances for the earth measurements (also referred as signal) and its precision are stored as a 16 bit mantissa and an 8-bit exponent. The signal can be computed using the equation: signal = mantissa x 10^exponent. For the precision, the same exponent is used as for the signal.

Quality *NISE erroneous data*

OMI data users must be aware of the following:

From April 5th 2016 onwards, the information derived from the Nominal Ice and Snow Extent (NISE) maps that is stored in the OMI Level-1B Ground Pixel Quality Flags is not been updating. The information in these flags is therefore now based on the latest available NISE map from April 4 2016. This is due to problems with the 37V channel of the DMSP F17 satellite from which the NISE maps are derived. This 37V channel generates erroneous data. No alternative source for these NISE maps is currently available. Note that this also impacts the quality of the Level-2 products.

The version 003 Level-1B product is the first public release. The quality of this product is not fully validated yet.
Access Constraints None
Use Constraints This Level-1B Data set (version 003/first public release) is not fully validated yet. Before using it in any publication please contact algorithm team leads for the current known problems and updates.
