The 'Measurement of H2O Absorption Cross-Sections for the Exploitation of GOME’ project is a European Space Agency (ESA) funded study. The GOME (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment) instruments are downward-viewing satellite-borne spectrometers. The study, undertaken between April 1999 and August 2000, has significantly improved knowledge of the absorption cross-sections and line parameters for water vapour in the near-infrared and visible spectral regions through a powerful combination of laboratory measurements, spectral analysis, and theoretical calculations. The dataset contains distributions and vertical profiles of atmospheric chemical species (in particular ozone) as well as the distribution of trace atmospheric species. This dataset is public.
