9.7.2 Product Master File

9.7.2.1 Overview

The Product Master File (PMF) contains the ozone information derived by the ozone algorithm, located in space and time, other meteorological information developed in support of the ozone computation, parameters indicating the validity of the individual ozone retrievals and the radiance information derived from the SBUV/2 measurements.

9.7.2.2 Data Organization

The operational monthly PMF contains one month of data comprised of whole orbits (delimited by night time equator crossing). The last orbit in the file may contain some data from the next day. The information on the file is grouped logically by orbit and by scan. Header and summary information is provided for each orbital group of scan by scan ozone data as well as daily summary information. The orbital group contains the OOPS Standard Header, ancillary data and instrument calibration data.

Figure 9.7.2.2-1 and Table 9.7.2.2-1 provide detailed descriptions of the arrangement of records on the PMF monthly operational file. Each daily trailer record consists of the OOPS standard headers and the daily PMF records. The daily group indicated in the table is repeated for each day of the month. The file has a Logical Record Length (LRECL) of 828 bytes and is blocked at 16,560 bytes (20 records). The SBUV/2 algorithm used prior to 2007 was called Version 6. Beginning in 2007, a revised SBUV/2 algorithm was implemented, called Version 8. For a detailed description of the Version 8 algorithm, refer to the Algorighm Theoretical Basis Document located at ftp://www.orbit.nesdis.noaa.gov/pub/smcd/spb/ozone/docs/SBUV2_V8_ATBT-020207.pdf. At that time, the Version 6 monthly PMF file described here became solely an intermediate file, not for distribution. Users were provided only with daily PMFs. The format for Version 8 daily files is shown in Table 9.7.2.2-9 through Table 9.7.2.2-12. Since the Version 6 product is an intermediate step in the production of the Version 8 product, users can note the full original Version 6 data record is reproduced atthe end of the Version 8 records, in words 1794-2000. A detailed description of the ozone algorithm is available in Section 4.

The archive original PMF(Version 6, available for years prior to 2007), available through CLASS,consits of daily files with only PMF data records (See Table 9.7.2.2-5). All other record types have been removed. The daily files are tarred together at the end of the month and available through CLASS on the second day of the next month. For Version 8, the archive format is exactly like the daily operational binary file format. Each daily file has two header records (Table 9.7.2.2-9 and Table 9.7.2.2-10), followed by a variable number of data records (Table 9.7.2.2-11, ending with a trailor record (Table 9.7.2.2-12).

Table 9.7.2.2-2 and Table 9.7.2.2-3 lists the pressure layers and levels at which the ozone data is reported. With Version 8, there are 21 levels, instead of 12. In atmospheres, the Layer bottoms are: 1.0, 0.631, 0.398, 0.251, 0.158, 0.100, 0.0631, 0.040, 0.0251, 0.0158, 0.0100, 0.0063, 0.0040, 0.00251, 0.00158, 0.0010, 0.00063, 0.00040, 0.00025, 0.000158, 0.00001, with the top layer extending to infinity.

The PMF is also be available in BUFR format (a WMO International format for observed data.). See Table 9.7.2.2-8 for the PMF BUFR words (Version 6) and Table 9.7.2.2-13 for Version 8. Not all words are included in the Version 8 BUFR files. Including only a subset of words, with modified units, allowed the product to be created in the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) compatible format. Reading the BUFR files requires an input BUFR table that descirbes the layout of the BUFR subsets. These subsets are combined into the BUFR messagesof up to 10,000 bytes. Table 9.7.2.2-13 contains theBUFR input table, made up of three sections: Table A, Table B and Table D.
