Abstract: The GOZCARDS Source Data for Nitric Acid Monthly Zonal Averages on a Geodetic Latitude and Pressure Grid product (GozSmlpHNO3) contains zonal means and related information (standard deviation, minimum/maximum value, etc.), calculated from original (???Level 2??? type) satellite instruments and products. The source HNO3 data are from the following satellite instruments: UARS MLS (v6; 1991 - 1997), ... View entire text

Purpose: GOZCARDS (Global OZone Chemistry And Related trace gas Data records for the Stratosphere) refers to a commonly-formatted Earth system data record (ESDR) for stratospheric composition, of high relevance to the issue of ozone decline and recovery. High-quality long-term ozone and related trace gas data records are needed to (a) evaluate and understand composition changes in the atmosphere and (b) constrain model representations of atmospheric dynamics and photochemistry.
