Title:Clear-sky performance of MOPITT retrievals using MODIS collection 6 Cloud Mask products
Abstract: We describe improvements in the latest version of MOPITT carbon monoxide (CO) products (v7) to be released in Summer 2016. This will be the first full MOPITT release to utilize MODIS Cloud Mask products from Collection 6 (c6). There has been a sizable increase (~15%) in the number of MOPITT v7 CO retrievals respect to v6. A decreasing trend in the number of MOPITT v6 retrievals since ~2010 (traceable to an issue with MODIS Band 29 resulting in false cloud detections) has been corrected in v7.
