  • The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment–2 (GOME–2), is an optical spectrometer, fed by a scan mirror which enables across–track scanning in nadir, as well as sideways viewing for polar coverage and instrument characterisation measurements using the moon. The scan mirror directs light into a telescope, designed to match the field of view of the instrument to the dimensions of the entrance slit. This scan mirror can also be directed towards internal calibration sources or towards a diffuser plate for calibration measurements using the sun. This dataset collection contains vertical profiles of ozone and other trace gases from the GOME-2 instrument on-board the Eumetsat Polar System (EPS) Metop-A satellite. GOME–2 comprises four main optical channels which focus the spectrum onto linear silicon photodiode detector arrays of 1024 pixels each, and two Polarisation Measurement Devices (PMDs) containing the same type of arrays for measurement of linearly polarised intensity in two perpendicular directions. GOME–2 senses the Earth’s Backscattered Radiance and Extraterrestrial Solar Irradiance in the ultraviolet and visible part of the spectrum (240 – 790 nm). The detected signals are preprocessed on board and then transmitted to ground for full data processing and generation of maps. The recorded spectra are used to derive a detailed picture of the total atmospheric content of ozone and the vertical ozone profile in the atmosphere, vertical profiles of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, water vapour, oxygen / oxygen dimmer, bromine oxide and other trace gases, as well as aerosols.

  • The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) was an instrument aboard ERS-2. The main scientific objective of the GOME mission is to measure the global distribution of ozone and several trace gases which play an important role in the ozone chemistry of the Earth's stratosphere and troposphere, for example, NO2, BrO, OClO, and SO2. This dataset contains version 1.2 ozone profiles derived by the Remote Sensing Group (RSG) at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire, UK, as part of the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO). These were derived from radiances measured by the GOME on-board ERS-2. The collection also includes total column ozone, column BrO, and column NO2 as well as cloud heights derived from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR), which are included to aid interpretation of the ozone profiles.
