OMPS-NPP L1G LP Radiance EV Wavelength-Altitude Grid swath orbital 3slit V2 (OMPS_NPP_LP_L1G_EV) at GES DISC

The OMPS-NPP L1G LP Radiance EV Wavelength-Altitude Grid swath orbital 3slit product contains the calibrated earth-viewing radiances measured by the Ozone Mapping and Profiling Suite (OMPS) Limb-Profiler (LP) sensor on the Suomi-NPP satellite. The LP L1G product measures radiances in the wavelength region from 280 nm to 1000 nm. Each granule contains data from the daylight portion of each orbit measured for a full day. Spatial coverage is global (-90 to 90 degrees latitude), and there are about 14.5 orbits per day each measuring three limb profiles spaced approximately 250 km in the cross-track direction. The profiles are measured from the ground up to about 80 km with a vertical resolution of the retrieved profiles of approximately 1-2 km. The data are written using the Hierarchical Data Format Version 5 or HDF5.
