MLS/Aura Level 3 Monthly Binned Nitric Acid (HNO3) Mixing Ratio on Assorted Grids V005 (ML3MBHNO3) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

ML3MBHNO3 is the EOS Aura Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) monthly binned on various vertical grids product for nitric acid (HNO3) derived from radiances measured by the 240 GHz radiometer at and below 10 hPa, and from the 190 GHz radiometer above 10 hPa. The data version is 5.1. Data coverage is from August 2005 to current. Spatial coverage is near-global (-82 to +82 degrees latitude), with a spatial resolution of 4 degrees latitude by 5 degrees longitude. The recommended useful vertical range is from 215 to 1.47 hPa (1.0 hPa under enhanced conditions), and the vertical resolution is between about 3 and 5 km. Users of the ML3MBHNO3 data product should read chapter 4 and section 3.12 of the EOS MLS Level 2 Version 5 Quality Document for more information.

The data files are archived in the netCDF4 format, which is also compatible with HDF5 readers and tools. Each file contains two grid objects (profile and column data), each with a set of data and geolocation fields, grid attributes, and metadata.
