Short Name:

OMI/Aura Near UV Aerosol Index, Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo 1-Orbit L2 13x24km

As part of the NASA's Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, this projects describes a multi-decadal Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR) of calibrated radiances as well as an Earth System Data Record (ESDR) of aerosol properties over the continents derived from a 32-year record of satellite near-UV observations by three sensors. The OMI/Aura Near UV (version 1) Aerosol Index, Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo data product consists of aerosol absorption optical depth, aerosol optical depth, aerosol single scattering albedo, cloud fraction, cloud optical depth, refractive index, radiance, reflectivity and residue at approximately 13x24km. This product also contains ancillary data for ocean corrected surface albedo and terrain pressure. These Level-2 data are stored in the Hierarchical Data Format 5 (HDF5) and are available from the Goddard Earth Sciences (GES) Data and Information Services Center (DISC).
