OMI NO2 Time-Series Readme Document


The tropospheric NO2 vertical column density (VCD) time-series are calculated using the Version 4.0 Aura Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) Standard Product (OMNO2) available at https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/datasets/OMNO2_003/summary. Only high quality ( VCD Quality Flags equal to 0 ) and cloud screened (Effective Cloud Fraction < 30% ) data were included in statistics. Additionally OMI row 46 was omitted due to possible row anomaly effects. The statistics are calculated for a 1x1 degree grid box surrounding each city over a 15 day period. Additional information on the time-series calculation can be found here: https://so2.gsfc.nasa.gov/no2/FAQs.htm
