Monthly Mean Zonal Mean (MZM) limb ozone profiles

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

The monthly mean zonal mean data from individual limb viewing satellite instruments (MZM) are created in the framework of the Ozone_cci project for the Ozone_cci instruments (GOMOS, MIPAS, SCIAMACHY, OSIRIS, SMR, ACE-FTS), as well as for some NASA instruments (SAGE II, HALOE, MLS, SABER, OMPS-LP). The information about the currently available MZM datasets is collected in Table 1.

The MZM data are computed in 10° latitude bands from 90°S to 90°N over the vertical range where valid Level 2 data can be retrieved. The vertical coordinate is that of the Level 2 retrieval. For SAGE II, GOMOS, OSIRIS, SCIAMACHY, ACE-FTS, MIPAS, OMPS-LP, the MZM ozone profiles are provided as ozone molar concentration (mol m-3) on an altitude grid, for MLS, HALOE and SABER - as ozone mixing ratio on a pressure grid.
