General Information

Name
The GOME-Evolution total column water vapor "climate" product (version 2.2)
Previous Version(s)
doi:10.1594/WDCC/MPIC_DLR_water_vapor
doi:10.1594/WDCC/GOME-EVL_water_vapor_climate
Acronym
GOME-EVL_water_vapor_clim_v2.2
Project
GOME-EVL (GOME Evolution)
Summary
The "climate" water vapor product developed within ESA's "GOME-Evolution" project provides a consistent time series of monthly mean global maps of total column water vapor derived from the satellite instruments GOME, SCIAMACHY, and GOME-2 (Metop-A).
Consistency amongst the different instruments (including cloud treatment) is substantially improved by (1) merging SCIAMACHY and GOME-2 observations to GOME pixel size, and (2) reducing the GOME-2 swath width to GOME/SCIAMACHY swath, thereby mimicking GOME-like observation conditions for all three sensors.

This is Version 2.2
