blue arrow DESCRIPTION

The GOME Total Column Water Vapour (TCWV) Climate product was generated by the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPIC), and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) within the ESA GOME-Evolution project. It is a Level 3 type product containing homogenized time-series of the global distribution of TCWV spanning over more than two decades (1995-2015).

The data is provided as single netCDF file, containing monthly mean TCWV (units kg/m2) with 1-degree resolution, and is based on measurements from the satellite instruments ERS-2 GOME, Envisat SCIAMACHY, and MetOp-A GOME-2. Details are available in the paper by Beirle et al, 2018,.

Please also consult the GOME TCWV Product Quality Readme file before using the data.

Digital Object Identifier (DOI): 10.5270/ER2-uw3eflc

Spatial coverage: 

90 N, -90 S, -180 W, 180 E

Temporal coverage:

1995-06-28 - 2011-07-02

Starting from July 2003, products have reduced orbital coverage due to permanent failure of the ERS-2 Low Bit Rate on-board storage capability. Data could not be stored on-board any longer, and only direct transmission to on-ground receiving stations distributed over the globe was possible.
