I am looking at level-2 OLCI products, more specifically at the T865, A865, CHL and TSM products. In the metadata of those products there is a scale factor and an offset factor given. For example the T865 has a scale factor of 0.006299213.
I want to compare the T865 values with AERONET-OC AOT measurements, but at the moment it seems that the T865 values are a lot higher than the AERONET-OC values. Does this mean I have to multiply the OLCI T865 values by the scale factor first? For this comparison I use the pixel extraction tool, maybe it has something to do with this?
