Documents (see below) are either related to all products (e.g., User Requirements Document (URD)) or are related to specific data sets called "Climate Research Data Packages" (CRDP).

The latest (and second) GHG-CCI+ CRDP is CRDP6 and consists of the following products:

  • CO2_OC2_FOCA (v09): XCO2 from OCO-2 retrieved with the FOCAL algorithm. The product is global and covers the period Jan 2015 - May 2020.
  • CH4_S5P_WFMD (v1.2): XCH4 from S5P/TROPOMI retrieved with the WFMD algorithm. Global, Nov 2017 - Apr 2020.
  • CO2_TAN_OCFP (v1.0): XCO2 from TanSat retrieved with the OCFP (or UoL-FP) algorithm. This initial product is (currently) limited to retrievals over land covers the two months June and August 2017.
  • CO2_GO2_SRFP (v1.0.0): XCO2 from GOSAT-2 retrieved with the SRON SRFP (or RemoTeC Full Physics (FP)) algorithm. Global, Feb 2019 - Oct 2019.
  • CH4_GO2_SRFP (v1.0.0): XCH4 from GOSAT-2 retrieved with the SRON SRFP (or RemoTeC Full Physics (FP)) algorithm. Global, Feb 2019 - Oct 2019.
  • CH4_GO2_SRPR (v1.0.0): XCH4 from GOSAT-2 retrieved with the SRON SRPR (or RemoTeC Proxy (PR)) algorithm. Global, Feb 2019 - Oct 2019.

The first GHG-CCI+ CRDP (available since March 2020) is CRDP5 and consists of the following products:

  • CO2_OC2_FOCA (v08): XCO2 from OCO-2 retrieved with the FOCAL algorithm. The product is global and covers the period 2015 - 2017.
  • CH4_S5P_WFMD (v1.2): XCH4 from S5P/TROPOMI retrieved with the WFMD algorithm. The product is global and covers the period Nov-2017 - 2018.
  • CO2_TAN_OCFP (v1.0): XCO2 from TanSat retrieved with the OCFP (or UoL-FP) algorithm. This initial product is (currently) limited to TCCON sites and covers the period 2017 - 2018.

Note that all GHG-CCI pre-cursor project data products (CRDP1-CRDP4) are now generated operationally via C3S and latest versions of these products are available via the Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS).

An overview of all products (CCI and C3S) and related documents is also provided HERE.
