AURAOMI ozone files with anomalous values

by jstum » Tue Jul 20, 2021 4:18 am America/New_York

Hello,

This post is to warn you that AURAOMI ancillary files exhibit anomalous ozone values in southern hemisphere since day 138 (18 May 2021). Total ozone is obviously wrong (more than twice its normal value). This anomaly affects chlorophyll maps (wrong chl blooms at the location of the Aura tracks) built from your level 2 products.

Best regards,

Jacques

Jacques,
Thanks for the note. Yes, it appears that there is an issue with the ozone source. We are investigating.

Regards,
Sean
