Development of Global Aerosol Mapping from Satellite Level-2 Products
Prototyping of a service-oriented product using data from SAGE and aerosol GOME products, with as primary objective the mapping of aerosol extinction data, including the matching of data taken at different wavelengths.

ERBS : SAGE II
ERS-2 : GOME
The ERS-2/GOME instrument and the package of atmospheric instruments under development for the Envisat-1 satellite will provide an unprecedented capability to study and monitor the Earth's atmosphere and its chemical constituents.
With a view to operational use by meteorological and environmental users, the instrument derived geophysical information as aerosol parameters is to be put in the form of a global map. In order to achieve this, the measurements taken by the instrument over limited areas and at different times need to be suitably integrated into a 3-D product by means of physical models.
The DAMS2P project aimed at prototyping a service-oriented product of this kind by initially using data from non-ESA missions (e.g. SAGE) and later aerosol GOME products derived from ERS-2.
The primary objective of the DAMS2P project was the mapping of aerosol extinction data, including the matching of data taken at different wavelengths.
