Short Name:

OMI/Aura Ozone (O3) DOAS Total Column Daily L3 1 day 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V3 (OMDOAO3e) at GES DISC

The OMI science team produces this Level-3 Aura/OMI Global OMDOAO3e Data Products (0.25deg Lat/Lon grids). This Level-3 global total column ozone product is derived from OMDOAO3 which is based on the Differential Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) fitting technique that essentially uses the OMI visible radiance values between 331.1 and 336.1 nm. In addition to the total ozone column (best quality data, satisfying the shortest path length) and its precision this product also contains some ancillary parameters such as cloud fraction, cloud height, etc. The short name for this Level-3 OMI ozone product is OMDOAO3e and the lead Algorithm scientist for this product and for OMDOAO3 (the data source of OMDOAO3e) is Dr. Pepijn Veefkind from KNMI. The OMDOAO3e product files are stored in the version 5 Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each daily file contains data from the day lit portion of the orbits (approximately 14 orbits) and is roughly 8 MB in size.
