Paper Abstract

In this paper the sun and moon spectra observed by GOME are examined in detail. For the moon observations this paper presents the first analysis of spectra and all factors that contribute to the measured signal are analyzed in detail. It is shown that the moon spectra, like the sun spectra, can be used for monitoring of the instrument performance. The geometrical moon albedo over the complete 240 - 800 nm wavelength range as measured by GOME is presented and discussed. The polarization properties of sunlight and moonlight measured by GOME are investigated.
