This new version 6.6 of the IASI L2 PPF includes a new product, SO2 altitude (O3M-379) from the AC SAF, which is released as ‘demonstrational’.

This product provides the estimate of the altitude where most atmospheric SO2 is located (provided SO2 is detected). Additionally, it can be used as a sensitive detection flag of SO2. Its main application area is in the study of volcanic SO2 and the algorithm is detailed in Clarisse et al. (2014); doi: 10.5194/acp-14-3095-2014.

The new product can be found as an additional layer to the SO2 column products based on Metop-A and Metop-B (O3M-57, operational) and Metop-C (O3M-377, demonstrational).

Demonstrational products are expected to be provided in an ‘operational’ mode after the completion of the development and validation.
