TROPOMI/Sentinel-5P Near UV Aerosol Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo L2 1-Orbit Snapshot 7.5 km x 3 km

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

As part of the NASA's Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, this projects describes a multi-decadal Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR) of calibrated radiances as well as an Earth System Data Record (ESDR) of aerosol properties over the continents derived from a 32-year record of satellite near-UV observations by three sensors.

The Corpenicus Sentinel-5P TROPOMI Near UV (version 1) Aerosol Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo data product consists of aerosol absorption optical depth, aerosol total optical depth, aerosol layer height, aerosol UV index, and aerosol single scattering albedo at approximately 7.5kmx3km. This product also contains ancillary data for ocean corrected surface albedo and terrain pressure.

These Level-2 data are stored in the NetCDF-4 format and are available from the Goddard Earth Sciences (GES) Data and Information Services Center (DISC).
