Description
The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) is a new instrument
added to the original European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS-1)
payload complement for the second European Remote Sensing Satellite
(ERS-2) launched on April 20, 1995.

GOME is a nadir-viewing spectrometer which observes solar radiation
transmitted through or scattered from the Earth's atmosphere or from
its surface. The recorded spectra is used to derive a detailed picture
of the atmosphere's content of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, water wapor,
oxygen/oxygen dimer and bromine oxide and other trace gases. The
ERS-2 orbit provides global Earth coverage every three days.
