    The main objectives of EUMETSAT Atmospheric Composition SAF (AC SAF) is to process, archive, validate and disseminate atmospheric composition products from GOME-2 and IASI instruments onboard EUMETSAT Metop-A, -B, and -C satellites. These products include column-integrated concentrations of different trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO) UV-radiation, aerosol index as well as ozone profiles.  Important applications of AC SAF data include monitoring global air quality and UV-radiation reaching the Earth's surface. This section describes the observations from GOME-2 instrument relevant for this training and how to access the data. IASI  observations are described in a separate section. 

    • From this section you can find basic information on aerosol absorbing index (AAI), and learn which kind of studies you can use the data for. 

    • This section gives a short overview on GOME-2  Offline aerosol data. 

    • In this section you will learn how to register as a user to the FMI and DLR ATMOS data services. This is needed in order to download the aerosol (FMI) and trace gas (DLR)  data. 

    • In this section you will learn how you can access the data via DLR ATMOS and FMI data services.
