Short Name:

OMI/Aura NO2 Total and Tropospheric Column Daily L2 Global Gridded 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V3 (OMNO2G) at GES DISC

This Level-2G daily global gridded product OMNO2G is based on the pixel level OMI Level-2 NO2 product OMNO2. OMNO2G data product is a special Level-2 Gridded Product where pixel level data are binned into 0.25x0.25 degree global grids. It contains the 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 rid box are saved Without Averaging. Nitrogen dioxide is an important chemical species in both the stratosphere, where it plays a key role in ozone chemistry, and in the troposphere, where it is a precursor to ozone production. In the troposphere, it is produced in various combustion processes and in lightning and is an indicator of poor air quality. The OMNO2G data product contains almost all parameters that are contained in OMNO2 product. The OMNO2G data are stored in version 5 EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains data from the day lit portion of the orbit (~14 orbits). The average file size for the OMNO2G data product is about 115 Mbytes.
