GOME Level 2 products were generated by DLR on behalf of the European Space Agency, and are the end result of the Level 1 to 2 reprocessing campaign of GOME Level 1 version 4 data with Level 2 GOME Data Processor (GDP) version 5.0 (HDF-5 format).
The GOME Level 2 data product comprises the product header, total column densities of ozone and nitrogen dioxide and their associated errors, cloud properties and selected geo-location information, diagnostics from the Level 1 to 2 algorithms and a small amount of statistical information.

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.
