  • The Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSRv3 dataset (covering 1995-2012) was generated within the Cloud_cci project, which was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) as part of the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme (Contract No.: 4000109870/13/I-NB). This dataset is one of the 6 datasets generated in Cloud_cci; all of them being based on passive-imager satellite measurements. This dataset is based on measurements from the ATSR2 and AATSR instruments (onboard the ERS2 and ENVISAT satellites) and contains a variety of cloud properties which were derived employing the Community Cloud retrieval for Climate (CC4CL; Sus et al., 2018; McGarragh et al., 2018) retrieval framework. The core cloud properties contained in the Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSRv3 dataset are cloud mask/fraction, cloud phase, cloud top pressure/height/temperature, cloud optical thickness, cloud effective radius and cloud liquid/ice water path. Spectral cloud albedo is also included as experimental product. The cloud properties are available at different processing levels: This particular dataset contains Level-3C (monthly averages and histograms) data, while Level-3U (globally gridded, unaveraged data fields) is also available as a separate dataset. Pixel-based uncertainty estimates come along with all properties and have been propagated into the Level-3C data. The data in this dataset are a subset of the ATSR2-AATSR L3C / L3U cloud products version 3.0 dataset produced by the ESA Cloud_cci project available from https://dx.doi.org/10.5676/DWD/ESA_Cloud_cci/ATSR2-AATSR/V003.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises the Level 3 aerosol monthly products from AATSR, using the Swansea University (SU) algorithm, version 4.2. For further details about these data products please see the documentation.

  • This dataset comprises gridded limb ozone monthly zonal mean profiles from the SCIAMACHY instrument on ENVISAT. The data are zonal mean time series (10° latitude bin) and include uncertainty/variability of the Monthly Zonal Mean. The monthly zonal mean (MZM) data set provides ozone profiles averaged in 10° latitude zones from 90°S to 90°N, for each month. The monthly zonal mean data are structured into yearly netcdf files, for each instrument separately. The filename indicates the instrument and the year. For example, the file “ESACCI-OZONE-L3-LP-SCIAMACHY_ENVISAT-MZM-2008-fv0001.nc” contains monthly zonal mean data for SCIAMACHY in 2008.

  • This dataset comprises gridded limb ozone monthly zonal mean profiles from the MIPAS instrument on the ENVISAT satellite. The data are zonal mean time series (10° latitude bin) and include uncertainty/variability of the Monthly Zonal Mean. The monthly zonal mean (MZM) data set provides ozone profiles averaged in 10° latitude zones from 90°S to 90°N, for each month. The monthly zonal mean data are structured into yearly netcdf files, for each instrument separately. The filename indicates the instrument and the year. For example, the file "ESACCI-OZONE-L3-LP-MIPAS_ENVISAT-MZM-2008-fv0001.nc“ contains monthly zonal mean data for MIPAS in 2008.

  • This dataset provides a Climate Data Record of Sea Ice Thickness for the northern hemisphere polar region, derived from the RA-2 (Radar Altimeter -2) instrument on the Envisat satellite. This product was generated in the context of the ESA Climate Change Initiative Programme (ESA CCI) by the Sea Ice CCI (Sea_Ice_cci) project. It provides daily sea ice thickness data for the winter months of October to April annually on the satellite measurement grid (Level 2P) at the full sensor resolution for the period October 2002 to March 2012.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises the Level 3 aerosol monthly products from GOMOS, using the AERGOM algorithm, version 2.19 and was produced by BIRA (Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy). The data are stored as 5 day averages and standard deviations of a range of aerosol variables, on global 2.5 degree x 10 degree latitutude/longitude grids, and in NetCDF format. The horizontal resolution is 0.5km. The variables included are: Stratospheric Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD), Angstrom coefficient, extinction profile. For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • The CO2_SCI_WFMD dataset comprises level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) of carbon dioxide (XCO2) from the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY (SCIAMACHY) on board the European Space Agency's environmental research satellite ENVISAT. It has been produced using the Weighting Function Modified DOAS (WFM-DOAS) algorithm, by the ESA Greenhouse Gases Climate Change Initiative (GHG_cci) project. The WFM-DOAS algorithm is a least-squares method based on scaling pre-selected atmospheric vertical profiles. Note that this has been designated as an 'alternative' algorithm for the GHG_cci and another XCO2 product has also been generated from the SCIAMACHY data using the baseline algorithm (the Bremen Optimal Estimation DOAS (BESD) algorithm). It is advised that users who aren't sure whether to use the baseline or alternative product use the product generated with the BESD baseline algorithm. For more information regarding the differences between baseline and alternative algorithms please see the GHG-CCI data products webpage. The data product is stored per day in seperate NetCDF-files (NetCDF-4 classic model). The product files contain the key products, i.e. the retrieved column-averaged dry air mole fractions for XCO2, several other useful parameters and additional information relevant to using the data e.g. the averaging kernels. For further information on the product, including details of the WFMD algorithm, the SCIAMACHY instrument and issues associated with the data please see the associated product user guide (PUG) or the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents in the documentation section.
