Paper Abstract

The Ozone Dynamics Ultraviolet Spectrometer (ODUS) is a satellite-borne, nadir-looking ultraviolet spectrometer for measuring total ozone amount. It will be launched in 2006 onboard Japanese earth observation satellite GCOM-A1 (GCOM : Global Change Observation Mission). The ODUS instrument measures continuous spectrum from 306 to 420nm with 0.5nm spectral step and 20km spatial resolution, using an Ebert-type polychromator and an one-dimensional silicon CMOS array detector, which will improve the accuracy of the retrieved total ozone amount. This paper presents an overview of the ODUS instrument and performance.
