OMI/Aura Zoom-in Ground Pixel Corners 1-Orbit L2 Swath 13x12km V003 (OMPIXCORZ) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: April 30, 2019

The Version-3 Aura Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) Pixel Corner Product in zoom-in mode, OMPIXCORZ, is now available from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) for public access. The shortname for this Level-2 OMI product is OMPIXCORZ. The algorithm lead for this product is the US OMI scientists Dr. Thomas Kurosu from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center, Cambridge, MA.

The OMPIXCORZ product contains ground locations of the OMI pixel corners in the zoom-in scanning mode. The motivation for the development of the OMI ground pixel corner products was the common need for: the visualization of derived OMI data products, the provision of ground pixel area for computations of trace gas emissions per area, the facilitation of the development of cross-platform pixel mapping applications (e.g., between OMI and MODIS), and to generally aid validation studies, to name just a few.

The OMPIXCORZ files are stored in the version 5 EOS Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS5). Each file contains data from the day lit portion of an orbit (~53 minutes) . There are approximately 14 orbits approximately one day per month. The average file size for the OMPIXCORZ data product is about 8 Mbytes.
