Dataset Collection


ESA Ozone Climate Change Initiative (Ozone CCI) Dataset Collection

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published


Datasets of ozone products produced by the ozone project within the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI). The project focuses on developing, delivering and characterizing a number of ozone ECV data products generated from European nadir, limb and occultation satellite sensors.

Three main product lines have been developed:

Total ozone from nadir UV backscatter sensors:
A time-series covering the period from 1995 until present generated by merging total ozone measurements from the GOME, SCIAMACHY, GOME-2 and OMI instruments. All European sensors are processed using the state-of-the-art direct-fitting algorithm developed for GOME (GDP5).

Ozone profiles from nadir UV backscatter sensors:
A merged ozone profile data set from GOME, SCIAMACHY, OMI and GOME-2 instruments generated for a minimum of two contiguous years. Best elements from existing retrieval codes are combined in a single CCI algorithm applied to all sensors.

Ozone profiles from limb and occultation sensors:
A merged ozone profile data set covering at least two contiguous years created from all limb/occultation sensors onboard of ENVISAT (GOMOS, MIPAS, SCIAMACHY) as well as from the Third Party Missions OSIRIS, SMR and ACE/FTS.
