This dataset contains a high quality operational Environmental Data Record (EDR) of total column ozone from the Ozone Mapping and Profiling Suite (OMPS) instrument onboard the Suomi-NPP satellite and is produced by the NOAA Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS). This global daily product provides estimates of total column ozone, UV reflectivity, and absorbing aerosol index values at a spatial resolution of 50 kilometers at nadir. The EDR also contains quality information including quality flags, measurement sensitivities, and retrieval efficiency factors. The OMPS Total Column Ozone EDR distributed by the NESDIS Data Exploitation (NDE) system and obtained from the Comprehensive Large-Array Stewardship System (CLASS) are distributed in single 86-second granules in NetCDF-4 format with metadata attributes included.
