TES Level-3 Daily Global Surveys

Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer Global 2.0° x 4.0° Gridded Data


This interface is for the visualization and analysis of EOS Aura TES daily level 3 gridded data. Level 3 daily data (per TES global survey of about 26 hours) are provided at 2° latitude by 4° longitude. The level 3 data are derived from level 2 retrieved parameters at each pressure level using spatial Delauney triangulation and interpolation (over poles extrapolation is used). See the Level 3 User’s Guide for details. Currently, methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), water vapor (H2O), deuterated water vapor (HDO), nitric acid (HNO3), ozone (O3), and atmospheric temperature data are available. Atmospheric temperature is separated into daytime (ascending orbit) and nighttime (descending orbit) measurements. Only nadir observation data are offered, except HNO3 which are limb mode data (see TES global survey availability calendars).

Vertical Profile
Select a vertical profile range. The range selection is disabled unless a qualifying parameter is selected. In order to enable this option (and populate the list with values), select a 3D parameter. 3D parameters have at least three dimensions and are labeled with a '(3D)' in the 'Parameters' section.
NOTE:  Selected 3D parameters must have the same 3rd dimension (e.g., pressure, altitude, wavelength, etc.) units in order to enable the vertical level menu.
