Paper Abstract

The paper considers practical problems in the elaboration of methods and techniques for long-term monitoring of the ozonosphere of the Earth from space vehicles by measuring of backscattered solar UV radiation. Possibilities of development and production of advanced space UV ozonometers to measure total ozone content and vertical density distribution with the best achievable for given technical solution parameters are studied based on results of operation of BUVS-1 and BUVS-2 UV ozonometers onboard 'meteor' series satellites. Technical realization of advanced UV ozonometer is described for the specific optic and physical scheme, which combines measurements of total ozone content and vertical density distribution in a single instrument.
