Short Name:

OMI/Aura Formaldehyde (HCHO) Total Column Daily L2 Global Gridded 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V3 (OMHCHOG) at GES DISC

This Level-2G daily global gridded product OMHCHOG is based on the pixel level OMI Level-2 HCHO product OMHCHO. OMHCHOG data product is a special Level-2 Global Gridded Product where pixel level data are binned into 0.25x0.25 degree grids. It contains data for all L2 scenes that have observation time between UTC times of 00:00:00 and 23:59:59.9999. All data pixels that fall in a grid box are saved without Averaging (third dimension provides indexing for the data points in each small grid). Scientists can apply a data filtering scheme of their choice and create Level-3 global gridded products. The OMHCHOG data product contains almost all parameters (e.g. total vertical column HCHO, standard errors, quality flags, geolocation and ancillary information) that are contained in the OMHCHO product. The OMHCHOG data are stored in the version 5 EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains data from the day lit portions of 14 to 15 orbits that cover the globe in a day. The average file size for the OMGCHOG data product is about 55 Mbytes.
