This dataset provides monthly zonal mean (MZM) ozone profiles from the SCIAMACHY (SCanning Imaging Spectrometer for Atmospheric CHartographY) instrument onboard ENVISAT, created as part of the ESA Ozone Climate Change Initiative project. The data are provided as ozone molar concentration (mol m-3) in 10 degree latitude bands from 90S to 90N, in the altitude range from 5 to 65 km.
The SCIAMACHY Level 2 profiles, which are used for the MZM data, are retrieved with the University of Bremen processor UBr v3.5 (Jia et al., 2015) and included into the new version of the HARMonized datasets of Ozone profiles (HARMOZ_ALT, Sofieva et al., 2013).
A more detailed description of the data processing and dataset parameters can be found in the README and in (Sofieva et al., 2017).

|Title||Derivation of the ESA Ozone CCI SCIAMACHY monthly zonal mean ozone profile data|
|Abstract||The monthly zonal mean ozone profile data are based on SCIAMACHY Level 2 profiles, retrieved with the University of Bremen processor UBr v3.5 (Jia et al., 2015) and included into the new version of the HARMonized datasets of Ozone profiles (HARMOZ_ALT, Sofieva et al., 2013).
