Short Name:

OMI/Aura Level 1B VIS Zoom-in Geolocated Earthshine Radiances 1-orbit L2 Swath 13x12 km V003 (OML1BRVZ) at GES DISC

The Aura Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) Level-1B (L1B) Geo-located Earth View VIS Radiance, Zoom-in-Mode (OML1BRVZ) Version-3 product contains geo-located Earth view spectral radiances from the VIS detectors in the wavelength range of 349 to 504 nm using spectral and spatial zoom-in measurement modes. In zoom-in measurement mode, OMI observes 60 ground pixels (13 km x 24 km at nadir) across the swath. Each file contains data from the day lit portion of an orbit (~60 minutes) and is roughly 190 MB in size. There are approximately 14 orbits per day. OMI performs spatial zoom-in measurements one day per month. For that day, this product also contains VIS measurements that are rebinned from the spatial zoom-in measurements. The lead algorithm scientist for this product is Dr. Marcel Dobber from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institude (KNMI). The OML1BRVZ files are stored in the HDF4 based EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS). The radiances for the earth measurements (also referred as signal) and its precision are stored as a 16 bit mantissa and an 8-bit exponent. The signal can be computed using the equation: signal = mantissa x 10^exponent. For the precision, the same exponent is used as for the signal.
