DSCOVR EPIC Level 2 Sulfur dioxide (SO2) Product with EPIC Version 3 Input Version 2

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

DSCOVR_EPIC_L2_SO2_v03 is the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) Enhanced Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) Level 2 Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) product with EPIC version 03 inputs. It has key UV channels suitable for retrievals of volcanic sulfur dioxide (SO2) and ash, enabling timely tracking and forecasting of volcanic plumes and enhancing our ability to mitigate aviation hazard. EPIC measurements will also be co-located with all satellite UV and infrared sensors, offering ample opportunities for data inter-comparisons and for demonstrating advanced retrievals of volcanic ash mass through a synergistic approach. We propose to implement our mature algorithms previously developed for Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) and Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) to enable SO2 and Ash Index (AI) products from EPIC UV observations to demonstrate improved estimates of volcanic SO2 and ash mass, height and sulfate aerosol loading.
