OMI/Aura Near UV Aerosol Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo 1-orbit L2 Swath 13x24 km V003 (OMAERUV) at GES DISC
Entry ID: OMAERUV_003


Summary
Abstract:

The Aura Ozone Monitoring Instrument level-2 near UV Aerosol data product 'OMAERUV', recently re-processed using an enhanced algorithm, is now released (April 2012) to the public. The data are available from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC). The shortname for this Level-2 near-UV Aerosol Product is OMAERUV_V003. The OMAERUV retrieval algorithm is ...


The OMAERUV files are stored in the version 5 EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains data from the day lit portion of an orbit (~53 minutes). There are approximately 14 orbits per day. The maximum file size for the OMAERUV data product is about 6 Mbytes.
