The Open access to Mars Assimilated Remote Soundings (OpenMARS)
database is a reanalysis product combining past spacecraft observations
with a state-of-the-art Mars Global Circulation Model (GCM). The
OpenMARS product is a global surface/atmosphere reference database of
key variables for multiple Mars years.
observations of water vapour column abundance and temperature profiles from
the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) instrument on the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft are
combined with a Mars GCM used at the Open
University. The database includes 2-hourly output of water vapour column
Extended details on this dataset can be found in the OpenMARS-water-reference-manual.pdf document included in this repository.
