OMPS-NPP L2 NM Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) Total and Tropospheric Column swath orbital V2 (OMPS_NPP_NMNO2_L2) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

The OMPS-NPP L2 NM Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) Total and Tropospheric Column swath orbital collection 2 version 2.0 product contains the retrieved nitrogen dioxide (NO2) measured by the Ozone Mapping and Profiling Suite (OMPS) Nadir-Mapper (NM) sensor on the Suomi-NPP satellite. A direct vertical column fitting (DVCF) algorithm is used to retrieve the NO2 total column amount and a new spatial technique is applied to separate the stratospheric and tropospheric amounts.

Each granule contains data from the daylight portion for a single orbit or about 50 minutes. Spatial coverage is global (-90 to 90 degrees latitude), and there are about 14 orbits per day each with a swath width of 2600 km. There are 35 pixels in the cross-track direction, with a pixel resolution of about 50 km x 50 km at nadir. The files are written using the Hierarchical Data Format Version 5 or HDF5.
