Short Name:

OMI/Aura Ozone (O3) DOAS Total Column Daily L2 Global Gridded 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V3 (OMDOAO3G) at GES DISC

This Level-2G daily global gridded product OMDOAO3G is based on the pixel level OMI Level-2 DOAO3 product OMDOAO3. This Level-2G 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 this product also contains some auxiliary derived and ancillary input parameters, e.g. ozone slant column density, ozone ghost column density, etc. The short name for this Level-2 OMI ozone product is OMDOAO3G and the lead algorithm scientist for this product and for OMDOAO3 (the data source of OMDOAO3G) is Dr. Pepijn Veefkind from KNMI. The OMDOAO3G 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 80 MB in size.
