Short Name:

OMI/Aura Cloud Pressure and Fraction (O2-O2 Absorption) 200-km swath subset along CloudSat track V003 (OMCLDO2_CPR) at GES DISC

This the OMI/Aura Cloud Pressure and Fraction (O2-O2 Absorption) subset along CloudSat track, for the purposes of the A-Train mission. The original product uses the DOAS technique method. This level-2 global cloud product at the pixel resolution (13x24 km2 at nadir) is based on the spectral fitting of O2-O2 absorption band at 477 nm using DOAS technique. The goal of the subset is to select and return OMI data that are within +/-100 km across the CloudSat track. The resultant OMI subset swath is sought to be about 200 km cross-track. This product contains cloud pressure, cloud fraction, slant column O2-O2 and O3, ring coefficients, uncertainties in derived parameters, terrain and geolocation information, solar and satellite viewing angles, and quality flags. Even though collocated with CloudSat, this subset can serve many other A-Train applications. (The shortname for this Level-2 OMI cloud pressure and fraction (O2-O2 absorption) subset along CloudSat track product is OMCLDO2_CPR)
