OMPS_NPP_LP_L2_AER675_DAILY

OMPS-NPP L2 LP Aerosol Extinction Vertical Profile swath daily 3slit V1.5 (OMPS_NPP_LP_L2_AER675_DAILY) at GES DISC

Version 1.5 is the current version of this data product, and supersedes all previous versions. The OMPS-NPP L2 LP Aerosol Extinction Vertical Profile swath daily 3slit collection contains the retrieved aerosol extinction coefficients at 675 nm (AER675) measured by the Ozone Mapping and Profiling Suite (OMPS) Limb-Profiler (LP) sensor on the Suomi-NPP satellite. The AER675 product measures stratospheric aerosol abundance and evolution to complement the OMPS LP measurements of stratospheric and mesospheric profile ozone. 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 1.8 km. The files are written using the Hierarchical Data Format Version 5 or HDF5.
