Missing data in the SO2 and AAI data archive

The satellites carrying the instruments perform 14 or 15 orbits per day. It happens that for one or more of these orbits data is missing, either because the instrument did not measure anything, or because the measurement is of too low quality for a reliable retrieval. This missing data leads to gaps in the plots of the daily data. For some geographic regions of either of the two Services the web pages accessing the data archive will then show empty pictures.

There are also days with no data at all, again because of lack of measurements or lack of the quality of these measurements. For these days there will be no data in the archive at all, and the web pages accessing the data archive will show a message.

The following tables lists full(!) days without any data; these table is maintained by hand and may thus be incomplete.
