BackForward Variable: NO2 Total Column

Full name NO2 Total Column
Definition 2D field of total amount of NO2 molecules per unit area in an atmospheric column extending from the Earth’s surface to the upper edge of the atmosphere.
Measuring Units molecules/cm-2 Uncertainty Units %
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units
Stability Units % (Stability /decade)


Comment: This variable is no longer in use. For current status refer to NO2 tropospheric column or stratospheric column in following applications: GCOS and Atmospheric Composition Monitoring and Forecasting.
