TES/Aura L3 HNO3 Daily Gridded V004

Version 004
  • Abstract
    Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) was an instrument aboard NASA's Aura satellite and was launched from California on July 15, 2004. The satellite flew at an altitude of 705 km in an orbit that took it near Earth's North and South Poles. Each orbit, the spacecraft advanced 22° westward and, after 233 orbits (16 days) it was back to its starting point. TES/Aura L3 HNO3 Daily Gridded V004 measures daily atmospheric temperature and volume mixing ratio (VMR) for the atmospheric species, which are provided at 2 degrees latitude by 4 degrees longitude spatial grids and at a subset of TES standard pressure levels. Algorithms for deriving TES Level 3 data will be provided in the data files.
  • Purpose
    Image maps of L3 data at different pressure levels provide quick views of the global distributions of TES species retrievals. Data usages for science investigations need to reference the algorithms for deriving TES L3 data.
  • Version Description
    New O3 climatology data. Updated Methane climatology data. Updated max Optical Path Difference values. New Chi2 quality flag reported. New desert emissivity flag. Updated GMAO a priori values.
