Summary
Abstract: The UGAMP ozone climatology consists in a 4-dimensional distribution
of ozone that has been built up from the combination of several
observational data sets. These data sets include satellite
observations (SBUV, SAGE II, SME, TOMS) as well as ozone sonde data
provided by the Atmospheric Environment Service of Canada. This global
climatology, covering five years (1985 to 1989), was originally
established to replace the simpler ozone climatologies used as input
in the UGAMP models (ECMWF parameterization or 2-D zonal means deduced
from satellite data).
