Abstract: ABSTRACT: The GOME-2 total ozone retrieval algorithm is based on OMI/TOMS (Ozone Monitoring Instrument / Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer) V8 algorithm, which is a three-step process of successive estimation improvement. The algorithm uses a pair of wavelengths 331nm and 318nm (340nm and 331nm for high solar zenith angle) to derive total ozone and surface reflectivity. It first calculates N-value ...
