Rationale

Rationale

  • Satellite instruments produce large amounts data.

  • There is an increased demand for satellite data not only from specialized users but also from researchers and public institutions for research, management, information and education purposes.

  • Many of these potential users lack the expertise to extract the data they need from the formats offered by the repositories.

  • The AMFIC web database has been developed to address the need of these users for fast, easy access of atmospheric composition data.

  • The main idea behind the AMFIC database (http://www.amfic.satellite-earth-simulator.com/), is to offer overpass columnar ascii files with atmospheric composition data for every spot within any region of interest through a set of interactive maps.


Product availability

Product availability

Four different products from SCIAMACHY/ENVISAT

@three different resolution modes (10x10deg, 5x5deg and 1x1deg)

  • WFM-DOAS v1.0 CH4 dry air columnar data (XCH4) for 2003 and 2004,

  • WFM-DOAS v0.6 CO total column data for 2003 and 2004, DOAS v1.0.3

  • SO2 total column data for the period 2005-2007 and TM4NO2A version 1.10

  • NO2 tropospheric and total column data for the period 2003-2008 are available.

    Database capable of hosting any other atmospheric composition product (level2 or level3) from any satellite instrument (e.g. OMI, GOME-2, GOSAT, MODIS, etc).


Example

Example

Daily single pixel swath NO2tropospheric column measurements from SCIAMACHY assigned to a 1ox1o grid cell covering the greater Thrace region where the Democritus University is located (red square)

Rationale

AMFIC-WSDB BACK data columnar ascii files with all the XCH4 values in 2003 for the grid cell centered in (36.5oN, 100.5oE).


Rationale

AMFIC-WSDB BACK data columnar ascii files with the monthly mean XCH4 standard deviation and number of months with available measurements in 2003 for the grid cell centered in (36.5oN, 100.5oE).


Rationale

AMFIC-WSDB BACK data graph with all the XCH4 single pixel values, the monthly mean, the standard deviation and number of months with available measurements in 2003 for the grid cell centered in (36.5oN, 100.5oE).


Rationale

Rationale

Seasonal variability of the SCIAMACHY XCH4, AIRS 206.25, 306.75 and 407.25 mbar pressure level CH4 vmr and NOAA CH4 flask measurements. The summer peaks are indicated by a colored rectangular.


Main advantages of the database

Main advantages of the database:

  • Allows a wider public to have direct access to satellite observations that they are either dispersed or not in a user-friendly format.

  • Allows the use of parallel satellite measurements of different parameters due to their common spatial and temporal resolution.

  • Allows the easy use of data from people interested in data analysis in conjunction with models but also for users who wish to compare surface observations with the corresponding satellite.

  • Data are suitable even for educational and informational purposes due to the interactive manner in which the system works.
