The GOME-2 a European instrument flying on the METOP-A series of satellites (Launched on October 19, 2006) was designed by the European Space Agency to measure atmospheric ozone, trace gases and ultraviolet radiation. It is a scanning instrument (scan width 1920 km) with near global coverage daily. The field-of-view on the ground is 80 km X 40 km.
NESDIS GOME 2 (MetOp-A) total ozone products, based on the SBUV/2 version 8 algorithms are produced in Binary and BUFR formats. The algorithm also produces aerosol index and reflectivity values, which are included in the total ozone binary product.
Granule products are available as imagery (gif), binary or BUFR, and daily products (1 x 1.25 deg maps) are available in ASCII or GRIB2 format.
Magnesium II index (MgII) information into a daily ASCII file for our solar and space users.
MetOp-A GOME-2 1B granules (raw data), total ozone binary files, gridded ASCII files and MgII index files are currently archived at CLASS
