Paper Abstract

The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) instruments are important tools that will be used to continue ozone measurements begun by instruments such as SBUV/2, TOMS and SOLSE. This paper presents pre-launch radiometric calibration results for the Nadir Profiler and Total Column instruments, which were delivered to the NPOESS Preparatory Project in late 2008. The paper includes a description of a subset of the calibration testing and data analysis including the radiance mode calibration using NIST-calibrated FEL lamps and a large-aperture integrating sphere using the Walker sphere calibration method.
