warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE Jun 17, 2016    OMI is up and running normally   

OMI has been up and running nominally since Tuesday June 14 2016. The L1B and L2 data quality is the same as before the anomaly. Therefore, OMI data from June 14 onward will be made available. The first orbit after the anomaly, for which data will become available, is 63372.

 Welcome to the EOS Aura Data Support Web Site at the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC). Aura is the EOS chemistry mission which aims to answer three important questions: is the ozone layer recovering, is air quality getting worse, and is the Earth's climate changing? Aura will continue the long term series of atmospheric chemistry measurements made by earlier missions. The Aura spacecraft operates in a 705 km sun-synchronous polar orbit, with an ascending equator crossing at 1:45 PM. The satellite carries four state-of-the-art instruments:
