Atmospheric Instances table lists some atmospheric parameters that are made availalble for data exploration. More parameters will be added in the furture.


GES DISC provides a web-based On-the-fly system (OTF) allowing to download data spatial, parameter and channel subsets. The service is available for selected products via the GES DISC Mirador interface.

  • OMI Level 2, Level 2G and Level 3 Spatial and Parameter Subsetting
  • MLS Level 2 Spatial Subsetting
  • HIRDLS Level 2 Spatial Subsetting
