Paper Abstract

The data processing of the global ozone monitoring by occultation of stars instrument separates naturally into two parts. The nonlinear spectral inversion retrieves the horizontally integrated gas densities. The vertical profiles of the gases are retrieved by using the generalized onion peeling method. The Markov chain Monte Carlo method has been used to calculate the posteriori distribution of the spectral inversion problem. This method was found to be simple and straightforward in analyzing the real posteriori distribution and confidence regions of the retrievals.
