MOPITT Derived CO (Near and Thermal Infrared Radiances) V008

Version 008
  • Abstract
    MOPITT Derived CO (Near and Thermal Infrared Radiances) V008 consists of the geolocated, retrieved carbon monoxide profiles and total column amounts for carbon monoxide. 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.
  • Version Description
    Version 8 uses a dynamic version of radiance correction that accounts for both instrument drift over time and the effects of water vapor on CO retrieval.
