Paper Abstract

Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) is a Dutch-Finnish ozone monitoring imaging spectrometer that is designed to provide accurate measurements of total column ozone, ozone profile, surface UV irradiance, aerosols and cloud characteristics, and the column amounts of trace gases SO2, NO2, HCHO, BrO, and OClO at high spatial resolution. The OMI along with the three other instruments, the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS), the High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS), and the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), will be flown on the NASA’s Aura mission in early 2004. The standard atmospheric chemistry and dynamics products derived from OMI, MLS, and HIRDLS will be archived at the NASA's GES DAAC (TES data products will be archived at NASA Langley Research Center DAAC) and will be freely available to the public. Highlights of OMI data products, as well as their availability, distribution and data support are discussed in this paper.
