Paper Abstract

The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) for the United States National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) consists of a two sensor suite and Level 1 and 2 data processing algorithms to produce calibrated radiance data and ozone total column and profile values. We describe the profiling system design that matches the limb-observing space sensor performance to measurement requirements of the retrieval algorithm and uses algorithm techniques to achieve the data quality needed for limb-scatter-based ozone profiling.
