Short Name:

OMI/Aura Multi-wavelength Aerosol Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo L3 1 day Best Pixel in 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V3 (OMAEROe) at GES DISC

The OMI science team produces this Level-3 Aura/OMI Global Aerosol Data Products OMAEROe (0.25deg Lat/Lon grids). The OMAEROe product selects best aerosol value from the Level2G good quality data that are reported in each grid, based on the multi-wavelength algorithm that uses up to 20 wavelength bands between 331 nm and 500 nm. The selection criteria is based on the shortest optical path length (secant of solar zenith angle + secant of viewing zenith angle). The OMAEROe files are stored in the version 5 EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains daily data from approximately 15 orbits. The maximum file size for the OMAEROe data product is about 7 Mbytes. (The shortname for this Level-3 Global Gridded Aerosol Product is OMAEROe)
