The BIRA-IASB BrO Product

The Total Column Level-3 Product
The total column BrO level-3 Product completes the BrO Level-2 Product with a collection of maps (monthly, composite 3-days and daily maps) in three available projections (Northern hemisphere, Southern hemisphere and global projection) and with time series over pre-defined stations known for carrying on BrO measurements.
Maps are created from pre-calculated grids (resolution :
0.5° in latitude, 1° in longitude for GOME, 0.5° in latitude,
0.5° in longitude for SCIAMACHY) using add-ons developed in Matlab,
a language for technical computing, including high-performance graphics
and mapping facilities.
Monthly maps are calculated by averaging data over a complete month; composite 3-days maps are calculated by averaging data on periods of 3 days, the minimum period necessary for GOME to achieve global coverage at the equator.
