Abstract: ABSTRACT: GOME-2 is a scanning spectrometer used to measure profiles of atmospheric ozone and to measure other trace gases in the atmosphere. It is an adaptation of a similar instrument already successfully flown on ESA's ERS-2 satellite. It is a nadir viewing across-track scanning spectrometer with a swath width of 1920 km. It measures the radiance back-scattered from the atmosphere and the ... View entire text

Purpose: PURPOSE: To continue the long-term monitoring of atmospheric ozone. GOME-2 will also make a significant contribution towards climate and atmospheric research and provide near real-time data for use in air quality forecasting.
