Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) SIPS
NASA's Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) Science Investigator-led Processing System (SIPS), operated by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO, processes data from the MOPITT instrument on NASA's Terra satellite. MOPITT SIPS products include atmospheric profiles of CO volume mixing ratio and CO total column values, gridded CO daily averages and monthly means. These products are provided to NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) for archiving and distribution.

NASA's Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project supports data processing by providing SIPS. Most of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) standard products are produced at facilities under the direct control of the instrument Principal Investigators/Team Leaders (PIs/TLs) or their designees. The SIPS are geographically distributed across the United States and are generally, but not necessarily, collocated with the PIs/TLs’ Scientific Computing Facilities (SCFs). Products produced at the SIPS using investigator-provided systems and software are sent to the appropriate DAACs for archival and distribution. Level 0 Data Products and Ancillary Data that begin the processing sequence are stored at the DAACs and retrieved by the SIPS.
