There are NO file name or short name changes, so users need not to make any changes in their subscriptions.

OMPS Limb Profile:

Creation of the OMPS Limb Profile EDR at NDE and its conversion to BUFR products will provide the products in NRT on an operational system. The EDRs will also be used as input to provide improved stratospheric information in a new version of the TOAST (Ozone blended products from OMPS LP and CrIS data) products.This project will address the OMPS LP Sensor Data Record (SDR), Ozone Profile and Ozone Total Column Environmental Data Records (EDRs) from S-NPP with performance requirements captured in the JPPS L1RD Supplement. Our Users are NWS , WMO Ozone Assessment.
