New Copernicus Sentinel-3 SYNergy Aerosol Optical Depth AOD products released

08 April 2021

We are pleased to announce the public release of the Copernicus Sentinel-3 SYNergy Aerosol Optical Depth AOD products processed in NTC timeliness. Information about the characterisation of the new products is available in the product notice document.

The SYNergy (OLCI&SLSTR) Level-2 AOD product will provide one measurement data file with Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) values and associated parameters on a 4.5 Km resolution grid, plus a number of annotation data files including information in support of the measurement data files, on a global scale. The measurement data file includes:

  • AOD at 440, 550, 670, 985, 1600 and 2250 nm,
  • Error estimates (1 s.d.) in AOD at 440, 550, 670, 985, 1600 and 2250 nm,
  • SSA at 440, 550, 670, 985, 1600 and 2250 nm,
  • Fine-mode aerosol optical depth at 550nm,
  • Aerosol Angstrom parameter between 550 and 865nm,
  • Dust aerosol optical depth at 550nm,
  • Aerosol absorption optical depth at 550nm.

The new AOD data are available since 8th of April 2021 with products of a sensing date starting from 6 April 2021. Historical AOD data with sensing date starting from 19 February 2020 will be available over the course of the next weeks on OpenHub (including SciHub and API Hub access points), Copernicus Service Data Hub and Collaborative Hub Node 1.
