Total ozone and other trace gases are measured and reported regularly due to the increased interest started with the ozone hole discovery but the new satellites dedicated to worldwide observations of these species need both short-and long-term well calibrated ground based observation for validation procedures.
The ESA/NASA Pandora network established a sophisticated, automatic calibration procedure that utilizes a variety of narrow-line and broadband emission lamps with temperature control for their UV-Vis-NIR spectroradiometers. In this study, we describe additional calibration efforts for ozone retrievals.
In this paper we explore the local aerosol field influence on the retrieval of the ozone spectra from PANDORA 2S measurements using collocated lidar and sunphotometer measurements and proposed a methodology to be implemented in the calibration procedure of the instruments.
