Thank you. I will inquire to the MERRA-2 group to see if they can assist. Using Giovanni, you can make a six-month average simply by making the Begin Date January and the End Date June, when using monthly data. This will average the data over the entire period. Please do me a favor. Send your attach...

These are interesting images. Is the source of the 77% number a citation of a reduction in shipping traffic? Note that MERRA-2 is a model, not actual observational data. Determining how the algorithm generates the values of the MERRA-2 variable would require more effort. I can ask our MERRA-2 expert...

Leon, Thanks for asking. The GES DISC has a couple of SO2 data products that might be examined. For today we did not have our SMEs for these data on alert, but they could be contacted. The OMI SO2 data product is more suited for large SO2 emissions, such as from volcanoes, but could be examined. TRO...
