OMI NO2 over Europe

A volume-reduced OMI NO2 dataset for Europe (25 W - 45 E / 30 N - 70 N) can be obtained from this page. The purpose is to make OMI data more easily accessible (through netcdf) to European (air quality) data assimilation models, without the burden of downloading and handling huge datasets. A subset of the full DOMINO product, including the tropospheric NO2 column, the column error and the averaging kernels, is stored in netcdf files, each containing one day of data. These dayfiles are bundled in monthly tar archives.

Access to DOMINO version 2.0 data, period 2004-2015, Europe only:
