New AIRS-OMI combined Ozone product available at the AVDC - 12.10.2017
The TES team has pioneered the combination of thermal infrared and utlraviolet spectral radiation from multiple instruments to infer the composition of the atmosphere with enhanced accuracy relative to either instrument alone (Worden et al, 2007, Fu et al, 2017). This approach has been applied to the EOS AIRS (https://airs.jpl.nasa.gov) infrared and OMI (https://aura.gsfc.nasa.gov/omi.html) ultraviolet data in close collaboration with each instrument team to yield tropospheric ozone with accuracies similar to TES.
This new AIRS-OMI combined Level 2 (L2) ozone profile product has the spatial sampling and the retrieval characteristics of ozone profiles equivalent to TES L2 standard data products along with observation operators and full error characterization. Preliminary data for 2006 is now available at the AVDC in the same file format as TES data. A validation report quantifying the differences with TES and ozone sondes along with data product readers are available at the TES Data page. Monthly mean browse products can be found
Additional years will become available in the near future.
