Paper Abstract

Three-fold restriction technique is used to determine the standard deviation of the error in the total-ozone content obtained from the three independent data resources such as ground-based station data, TOMS (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrophotometer) and GOME (The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment) in 1995-2004. The results show that, in general, the accuracy of TOMS V8 data is the best and that of ground-based observations is the worst. Since the ground-based observations can be classified into 3 types according to the equipment principles such as Filter, Brewer and Dobson, the standard deviation of the errors for the 3 types of ground data are also calculated with the 3-fold restriction technique and it has been found that the Filter has the largest error, the Brewer is the second, and the Dobson is the least. The data quality at Shiangher Dobson Station of China is better than either TOMS or GOME. The data quality at Waliguan Brewer Station of China is better than TOMS, but worse than GOME. The error in TOMS V8 is evidently less than in TOMS V7 because of the algorithm amelioration of TOMS V8 over TOMS V7.
