MOPITT CO monthly climatology 2002-2021

Monthly CO daytime measurements from the satellite-based instrument MOPITT, averaged between 2002 and 2021. We use level 3, version 9 joint NIR/TIR retrievals (doi: 10.5067/TERRA/MOPITT/MOP03JM.009). These data have been compiled for the NCAR ADF model evaluation package (

Note: August and September averages are missing 2009 data due to instrument downtime.
