HARMonized dataset of Ozone profiles (HARMOZ)

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

The harmonized dataset is the collection of ozone profiles from individual instruments, which are:

  • screened for invalid data by the instrument experts
  • presented on the same vertical grid
  • written in the same netcdf format

The new version of HARMOZ (2017) is available: altitude-gridded (HARMOZ_ALT) and pressure-gridded (HARMOZ_PRS) ozone concentration datasets. The information about the new datasets is collected in Table 1.

README for information about the data format and parameters.
