SUNLIT – Synergy of Using Nadir and Limb Instruments for Tropospheric ozone monitoring

FINNISH METEOROLOGICAL INSTITUTE (FI)

Summary

The project aims at developing a new global tropospheric ozone datasets form TROPOMI and OMI measurements. These data will be a valuable addition to the operational TROPOMI Tropospheric ozone column product by the convective cloud differential method, which will be available for tropics only. In addition, the multi-limb-instrument stratospheric ozone column dataset, compatible with nadir total ozone column measurements, which will be created as an intermediate step of the proposed development, will have its own value and can be used in climate-related ozone studies. The project has been kicked-off the 5th September. A first informal progress meeting has been on 10th December. First results have been shown and look promising.
