MOPITT Level 2
Entry Title: MOPITT Derived CO (Near and Thermal Infrared Radiances) V008

Entry ID: MOP02J_8
Tropospheric Composition
Description

MOP02J_8 is the Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) Derived Carbon Monoxide (CO) (Near and Thermal Infrared Radiances) version 8 product. It consists of geo-located, retrieved CO profiles and total column amounts for CO. Ancillary data concerning surface properties and cloud conditions at the locations of the retrieved parameters are also included. Each retrieval is accompanied by an estimated error. MOPITT was successfully launched into sun-synchronous polar orbit aboard Terra, NASA's first Earth Observing System spacecraft, on December 18, 1999. The MOPITT instrument was constructed by a consortium of Canadian companies and funded by the Space Science Division of the Canadian Space Agency. Data collection for this product was completed in March of 2020.
