MOPITT V6 Product Conclusion

MOPITT V6 Product Conclusion

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Processing and deliveries of the MOPITT Version 6 products will cease on August 31, 2017. Users of V5 and V6 products are encouraged to instead use the V7 products. Please see the V7 User's Guide and errata page for issues in the V6 product that are resolved in V7. In particular, we note that V6N and V6J are not suitable for long term trend analysis. V6 product users who have special needs for V6 products generated for dates after March 31, 2017 should contact the MOPITT/NCAR team and inquire about the availability of such products.


V7 validation results are available in: Deeter, M. N., Edwards, D. P., Francis, G. L., Gille, J. C., Martinez-Alonso, S., Worden, H.
