Short Name:

OMI/Aura Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) Total Column Daily L2 Global Gridded 0.125 degree x 0.125 degree V3 (OMSO2G) at GES DISC

This Level-2G daily global gridded product OMSO2G is based on the pixel level OMI Level-2 SO2 product OMSO2. OMSO2G data product is a special Level-2 gridded product where pixel level products are binned into 0.125x0.125 degree global grids. It contains the data for all 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. Scientists can apply a data filtering scheme of their choice and create new gridded products. The OMSO2G data product contains almost all parameters that are contained in OMSO2 files. For example, in addition to three values of SO2 Vertical column corresponding to three a-priori vertical profiles used in the retrieval algorithm, and ancillary parameters, e.g., UV aerosol index, cloud fraction, cloud pressure, geolocation, solar and satellite viewing angles, and quality flags. The OMSO2G 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 OMTO3G data product is about 146 Mbytes.
