The POAM II retreival version 6.0 includes the following profile data:

  1. Ozone concentration, 15-50 km
  2. NO2 concentration, 20-40 km
  3. Aerosol extinction at 1060nm, 10-30 km
  4. UKMO temperature, pressure, and potential vorticity, 0-60 km

The ancillary profiles of temperature, pressure, and potential vorticity from the UK Meteorological Office (UKMO) have been interpolated to the location and time of the POAM II measurements. The MSISE-90 model has been used to extend these profiles above the top UKMO pressure level.

The time span for the data is Nov 3, 1993 to Nov 13, 1996. A complete catalog containing the times and locations of all the retrievals is available below:

  • Northern Hemisphere Catalog
  • Southern Hemisphere Catalog

The data is also available at the NASA Langley Atmospheric Sciences Data Center, http://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov.

The data are also distributed by NRL by FTP in several formats, including ascii format, HDF, and IDL¨ save files.

POAM III DATA

The POAM III retreival version 4 includes the following profile data:

  1. Ozone concentration, 5-60 km
  2. NO2 concentration, 20-40 km
  3. Aerosol extinction at 6 wavelengths, 5-25 km
  4. Water Vapour, 5-45 km
  5. UKMO temperature, pressure, and potential vorticity, 0-60 km

The ancillary profiles of temperature, pressure, and potential vorticity from the UK Met Office (UKMO) have been interpolated to the location and time of the POAM III measurements. The MSISE-90 model has been used to extend these profiles above the top UKMO pressure level.

The time span for the data is April 22, 1998 to Dec 5, 2005.

A sample catalog containing the times and locations for the first few years of retrievals is available below:

  • Northern Hemisphere Catalog
  • Southern Hemisphere Catalog

The data are distributed by FTP in several formats, including ascii format, HDF, and IDL¨ save files.
