The OMPS-NPP L2 NM Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Total and Tropospheric Column swath orbital collection 2 version 2.0 product contains the retrieved sulfur dioxide (SO2) measured by the Ozone Mapping and Profiling Suite (OMPS) Nadir-Mapper (NM) sensor on the Suomi-NPP satellite. A Principle Component Analysis (PCA) algorithm is used to retrieve the SO2 total column amount and column amounts in the lower (centered at 2.5 km), middle (centered at 7.5 km) and upper (centered at 11 km) troposphere, as well as the lower stratosphere (centered at 16 km). Each granule contains data from the daylight portion for a single orbit or about 50 minutes. Spatial coverage is global (-90 to 90 degrees latitude), and there are about 14 orbits per day each with a swath width of 2600 km. There are 35 pixels in the cross-track direction, with a pixel resolution of about 50 km x 50 km at nadir. The files are written using the Hierarchical Data Format Version 5 or HDF5.
