  • The CO2_GOS_OCFP dataset comprises level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) of carbon dioxide (XCO2) from the Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observations (TANSO-FTS) NIR and SWIR spectra, onboard the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT). It has been produced using the University of Leicester Full-Physics Retrieval Algorithm, which is based on the original Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) Full Physics Retrieval Algorithm and modified for use on GOSAT spectra. A second product, generated using the alternative SRFP algorithm, is also available. The OCFP product is considered the GHG_cci baseline product and it is advised that users who aren't sure which of the two products to use, use this product. For more information regarding the differences between baseline and alternative algorithms please see the Greenhouse Gases CCI data products webpage. The XCO2 product is stored in NetCDF format with all GOSAT soundings on a single day stored in one file. For further information, including details of the OCFP algorithm and the TANSO-FTS instrument, please see the associated product user guide (PUG).

  • 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 2 aerosol products from ATSR-2, using the ORAC algorithm, version 3.02. For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • The CO2_GOS_SRFP dataset comprises level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) for carbon dioxide (XCO2), from the Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observations (TANSO-FTS) NIR and SWIR spectra, onboard the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT). It has been produced using the RemoTeC Full Physics (SRFP) algorithm, v2.3.8, by the Greenhouse Gases Climate Change Initiative (GHG_cci) project. This forms part of the GHG_cci Climate Research Data Package Number 4 (CRDP#4). The RemoTeC Full Physics (SRFP) algorithm has been jointly developed at SRON and KIT. A second product, generated using the OCFP (University of Leicester Full Physics) algorithm, is also available, and is considered the GHG_cci baseline product, whilst the SRFP product forms an 'alternative' product. It is advised that users who aren't sure whether to use the baseline or alternative product use the OCFP product. For more information on the differences between baseline and alternative algorithms please see the Greenhouse Gases CCI data products webpage. The data product is stored per day in a single NetCDF file. Retrieval results are provided for the individual GOSAT spatial footprints, no averaging having been applied. The product file contains the key standard products, i.e. the retrieved column averaged dry air mixing ratio XCO2 with bias correction, averaging kernels and quality flags, as well as secondary products specific for the RemoTeC algorithm. For further information, including details of the SRFP algorithm and the TANSO-FTS instrument, please see the associated product user guide (PUG) or the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document.

  • 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.

  • The CO2_SCI_BESD dataset comprises level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY (SCIAMACHY) instrument on board the European Space Agency's (ESA's) environmental research satellite ENVISAT. It has been produced using the Bremen Optimal Estimation DOAS (BESD) algorithm, by the ESA Greenhouse Gases Climate Change Initiative (GHG_cci) project. The Bremen Optimal Estimation DOAS (BESD) algorithm is a full physics algorithm which uses measurements in the O2-A absorption band to retrieve scattering information about clouds and aerosols. This is the Greenhouse Gases CCI baseline algorithm for deriving SCIAMACHY XCO2 data. A product has also been generated from the SCIAMACHY data using an alternative algorithm: the WFMD algorithm. It is advised that users who aren't sure whether to use the baseline or alternative product use this BESD product. For more information regarding the differences between baseline and alternative algorithms please see the Greenhouse Gases CCI data products webpage. For further information on the product, including details of the BESD algorithm and the SCIAMACHY instrument, please see the associated product user guide (PUG) or the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents.

  • Part of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Greenhouse Gases (GHG), the XCH4 EMMA product comprises a level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fraction (mixing ratio) for methane (CH4). The product has been produced by applying the ensemble median algorithm EMMA to level 2 data of several different retrieval products from the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT) This is therefore a merged GOSAT XCH4 Level 2 product, primarily used as a comparison tool to assess the level of agreement / disagreement of the various input products (for model-independent global comparison, i.e. for comparisons not restricted to TCCON validation sites and independent of global model data).
