AC SAF GOME-2 coarse resolution ozone profile products discontinued

Processing of the AC SAF GOME-2 coarse resolution ozone profile products will be stopped on 1 June.

Thursday, 09 March 2017

The AC SAF* has processed and disseminated GOME-2 coarse resolution ozone profile products (on a 640x40 km^2 surface footprint) since March 2008. In May 2013 the AC SAF introduced high resolution ozone profile products (on a smaller, 80x40 km^2 surface footprint). As these have become the standard product in recent years, processing of the coarse resolution product will cease.

If you are still using the coarse resolution product, please update your systems so that the high resolution product is used.

The product to be discontinued is:

Near Real-Time Ozone Profiles — Metop

The high resolution product is:

High Resolution GOME-2 Vertical Ozone Profiles — Metop

Dissemination channels of the high resolution ozone profile products remain the same:

The coarse resolution products will be stored. If you need them or have problems using the high resolution products, contact the AC SAF Helpdesk at helpdesk@acsaf.org.
