The ozone profiles show the vertical ozone distribution in the atmosphere from about 0 - 50 km. The profiles are derived from the reflectances measured by GOME-2 between 265 and 330 nm in nadir observations. Taken into account are surface pressure, surface albedo, cloud top pressure, cloud fraction and cloud albedo.

Latest results for GOME-2

GOME-2 vertical ozone distribution along the orbit

Please note that GOME-2 level 1b data arrives in 3 minute data packets (PDU's) which are processed in NRT (within 3 hours of sensing) but in order to ensure that a complete orbit is stored in the archive, the final concatenation of the PDU's is done two days later. Therefore the data above has a delay of two days.

The GOME-2 vertical ozone profiles are provided by KNMI in the framework of the EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facility on Atmospheric Composition monitoring (AC SAF).
The GOME-2 ozone profiles are currently an operational product. Imagery is available from this website, but due to data policy restrictions the underlying datafiles are available via the EUMETSAT Data Center (see the ACSAF website for more information).
