Multi-Satellite Air Quality Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Database Long-Term L4 Global V1 (MSAQSO2L4) at GES DISC
Entry ID: MSAQSO2L4_1

Abstract: These data are a part of Multi-Decadal Sulfur Dioxide Climatology from Satellite Instruments (MEaSUREs-12-0022 project).

The catalogue MSAQSO2L4 file contains the site coordinates, source type, country, source name, annual SO2 emissions and uncertainties, and the number of EOS Aura/OMI satellite SO2 measurements used for emissions estimates near each source.

The 2018 data have been recently ... View entire text
