Sentinel 5P total column ozone products contain total ozone, ozone temperature, and error information including averaging kernels. These data products are provided in a 7km x 3.5km resolution.
Ozone (O3) is of crucial importance for the equilibrium of the Earth's atmosphere. In the stratosphere, the ozone layer shields the biosphere from dangerous solar ultraviolet radiation. In the troposphere, it acts as an efficient cleansing agent, but at high concentrations, it also becomes harmful to the health of humans, animals, and vegetation. Ozone is also an important greenhouse-gas contributor to ongoing climate change. Since the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole in the 1980s and the subsequent Montreal Protocol regulating the production of chlorine-containing ozone-depleting substances, ozone has been routinely monitored from the ground and from space. For TROPOMI/S5P, there are two algorithms that will deliver total ozone: GDP for the near real-time and GODFIT for the offline products. GDP is currently being used for generating the operational total ozone products from GOME, SCIAMACHY and GOME-2; while GODFIT is being used in the ESA CCI and the Copernicus C3S projects.

|Title||Level 2 Ozone (O3) total column processing algorithm applied to Sentinel 5P TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) raw data|
|Abstract||This computation involves the Level 2 processing algorithm applied to raw TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) data. The one-step OFFL algorithm (S5P_TO3_GODFIT) comprises a non-linear least-squares inversion based on the direct comparison of simulated and measured backscattered radiances. Simulated radiances are computed (again for a multiple scattering atmosphere) at all nominal wavelengths in the UV fitting window, along with corresponding analytically derived weighting functions for total ozone, albedo and effective temperature. The algorithm also contains closure fitting coefficients and a semi-empirical correction for Ring interference. Although more accurate, the S5P_TO3_GODFIT algorithm involves many more RT simulations than S5P_TO3_DOAS, and is, therefore, slower by an order of magnitude approximately. This is currently the main driver for the selection of S5P_TO3_DOAS for the NRTI product. For more information on the processing of the O3 product please refer to the ATBD document.|
