7 June 2012: Release of software version SC-AAI 5.1. Most important features:
  • based on SCIAMACHY level-1 data version 7.04-W
  • variation of the ozone field is accounted for, now that the algorithm has access to TOSOMI total ozone columns
  • improved full scan-mirror dependent correction for instrument degradation for all measurement modes
  • correction for the obstruction in the FOV for westernmost pixels that was present until the end of March 2003
  • sphericity of the Earth's atmosphere is taken into account
  • improved look-up tables including O2-O2 absorption
  • viewing and solar angles calculated w.r.t. sea level instead of TOA
  • improved sunglint flagging using FRESCO cloud information; proper flagging for solar eclipse events
