OZONESAT Station Network

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


Observation stations within the OZONESAT station network transmit their observations in the form of an OZONESAT message. Around 2400 global daily observations are taken by satellites, and the results are transmitted in the OZONESAT message. The OZONESAT message contains measurements of atmospheric profiles of ozone concentrations.

Operational Details
  1. Transmission of OZONESAT messages

    The OZONESAT network uses data from satellites to probe the atmosphere and measure parameters such as ozone content, and ozone partial pressure. The measurements are then sent to the fixed land observing station and used to deduce the relevant parameters, which are then transmitted in the OZONESAT message. Satellite data is received daily and cumulates in around 2400 observations per day. Ingest scripts run at the BADC every 20 minutes, converting the incoming files to the self describing BADC-CSV format, but neither the processed or raw data are placed into archive until the following day. The relevant parameters are stored in the MetDB dataset on the BADC website.

Who to contact

If you have queries about these pages or about obtaining the Met Office surface stations data from the BADC then you should contact CEDA Support. Your query should be answered within one working day. When follow-up work is required, the CEDA support will carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible, and in any case, the user will be kept informed of progress.
