MOPITT Data and Information

Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) was successfully launched into sun-synchronous polar orbit aboard Terra, NASA's first Earth Observing System spacecraft on December 18, 1999. The MOPITT instrument was constructed by a consortium of Canadian companies and funded by the Space Science Division of the Canadian Space Agency.

 

MOPITT measurements yield atmospheric profiles of CO volume mixing ratio and CO total column values using near-infrared radiation at 2.3 µm and thermal-infrared radiation at 4.7 µm. There are no current plans to release a MOPITT methane product.

 

MOP02, MOP03 & MOP03M Version 3, 4, 5 , 6 and 7 / 107  products are available by request only. Please contact User Services.
