This report summarizes research done under NASA Grant NAGW through Septem The research performed under this grant includes development and. SAO also continues to participate in GOME validation studies, to the limit that can be accomplished at the present level of funding. The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment was successfully launched on the ERS-2 satellite on Ap , and remains working in normal fashion. SCIAMACHY is currently in instrument characterization. Abstract. The research performed during this reporting period includes development and maintenance of scientific software for the GOME retrieval algorithms, consultation on operational software development for GOME, further sensitivity and instrument studies to help finalize the definition of the SCIAMACHY instrument, and consultation on optical and detector issues for both GOME and : J. C. Geary and K. V. Chance. This provided access to all GOME data; The SAO activities that are carried out as a result of selection by ESA were funded by the present grant. The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment was successfully launched on the ERS- 2 satellite on Ap , and remains working in normal fashion. SCIAMACHY is currently scheduled for launch in early Author: R.

Together with GOME it was the first instrument of its kind in Europe, so experience was not there and had to be gained => If you build instruments using new concepts, expect more extra time is needed In S4-UVN study, a detailled TN with calibration recommendation based experience with GOME, SCIAMACHY, GOME-2 and OMI was prepared. The feasibility of the SCIAMACHY instrument and retrieval concepts could be successfully demonstrated for nadir observations with GOME. The absorptions of the trace gases O3, NO2, BrO, OClO, H2O, SO2, and HCHO could be observed as predicted and the retrieval of total and tropospheric column information from GOME measurements was achieved. measured by SCIAMACHY and that of GOME. Courtesy R. Siddans, RAL. Figs. 2 and 3 show comparisons of the SCIAMACHY reflectancewith a model and with GOME reflectancere-spectively. The offsets in nadir reflectanceare % for channels 1 to 5, unknown for channel 6, and vari-able, due to the variable ice layer, for channels 7 and 8. SCIAMACHY is an imaging spectrometer whose primary mission objective is to perform global measurements of trace gases in the troposphere and in the stratosphere. The solar radiation transmitted, backscattered and reflected from the atmosphere is recorded at relatively high resolution ( nm to nm) over the range nm to nm.
