The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) onboard the Suomi-NPP satellite monitors ozone from space. OMPS will collect total column and vertical profile ozone data and continue the daily global data produced by the heritage ozone monitoring systems, the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer (SBUV)/2 and Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) on board NOAA-16, but with higher fidelity. The collection of this data contributes to fulfilling the U.S. treaty obligation to monitor the ozone depletion for the Montreal Protocol to ensure no gaps on ozone coverage. Nadir Profile Spectrometer provides ozone profiles in a single ground pixel of 250 km spatial resolution at nadir. By default, OMPS SDR data obtained from the Comprehensive Large Array-Data Stewardship System (CLASS) are distributed as aggregated files of four 86-second granules in HDF5 file format with metadata attributes.
