Short Name:

L2 Daily Solar-Induced Fluorescence (SIF) from ERS-2 GOME, 1995-2003

This dataset provides Level 2 Solar-Induced Fluorescence (SIF) of Chlorophyll estimates derived from the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) instrument on the European Space Agency's (ESA's) European Remote-Sensing 2 (ERS-2) satellite. Each file contains daily raw and bias-adjusted solar-induced fluorescence on an orbital basis (land pixels only), at a resolution of 40 km x 320 km, along with quality control information and ancillary data. Data is provided for the period from 19950701 to 20030622. The GOME SIF product is inherently noisy due to low signal levels and has undergone only a limited amount of validation.
