Paper Abstract

Ground-based observations of zenith sky polarization have been performed with the GOME breadboard model. This spectrometer operates at high spectral resolution while at the same time covering a broad spectral range from the UV into the near-IR. Spectral fine-structures have been observed in the zenith sky polarization which are related to the ring effect and to molecular absorption in the atmosphere. First results obtained on a clear sky day are presented.
