Aura's instruments study tropospheric, or low-level atmospheric chemistry. Many different organizations monitor regional areas of the troposphere, but Aura is the first to record daily global measurements.

This animation shows how ozone in the Troposphere changes from September 28, 2004 to November 6, 2004. Areas of Red represent high levels (50+ DU) and areas of blue represent low areas (20 DU).
