TOMS Meteor-3 Ground Station Overpass Data V008 (TOMSM3OVP) at GES DISC

Version 008 eng
  • Abstract
    The Meteor-3 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) version 8 daily ground station overpass data product contains total column ozone, UV aerosol index, Lambertian effective surface reflectivity (Rayleigh corrected), UV aerosol index and sulfur dioxide index values. The overpass data files contain the data derived from the best-matched TOMS field-of-view (FOV) to a site for every day the TOMS instrument was operational. The data are stored in an ASCII format. TOMS data were produced by the Laboratory for Atmospheres at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (Code 614).
  • Purpose
    This product can be used to compare TOMS with ground station data.

    Quality
    Since TOMS on Meteor-3 was launched in a 212 day precessing polar orbit, the local equator crossing changes with time. Consequently no data were retrieved when the instrument was viewing near the morning or evening terminator. The table below lists the periods when high quality data are available: 08/22/1991 - 09/02/1991 10/26/1991 - 12/17/1991 02/09/1992 - 04/02/1992 05/26/1992 - 07/01/1992 08/31/1992 - 11/09/1992 12/16/1992 - 02/24/1993 04/01/1993 - 06/10/1993 07/17/1993 - 09/25/1993 10/31/1993 - 01/09/1994 02/14/1994 - 04/25/1994 06/01/1994 - 08/10/1994
