Short Name:

MOPITT Beta Derived CO (Near Infrared Radiances) V107

The MOPITT Beta Level 2 data product consists of the geolocated, retrieved carbon monoxide profiles and total column amounts for carbon monoxide and is an unvalidated beta product subject to recalibration. Ancillary data concerning surface properties and cloud conditions at the locations of the retrieved parameters are also included. Each retrieval is accompanied by an estimated error. Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) was successfully launched into sun-synchronous polar orbit aboard Terra, NASA's first Earth Observing System spacecraft on December 18, 1999. The MOPITT instrument was constructed by a consortium of Canadian companies and funded by the Space Science Division of the Canadian Space Agency.
