Paper Abstract

The Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) is a UV/VIS spectrograph (270-500 nm) in the line of GOME3 and SCIAMACHY4. It employs two-dimensional CCD detectors for simultaneous registration of numerous spectra from ground pixels in the swath perpendicular to the flight direction. The OMI field of view is 13 x 2600 km2 per two seconds nominal exposure time providing (almost) daily global coverage in combination with small ground pixel sizes (nominally 13 x 24 km2, minimum 13 x 12 km2). The small ground pixels will allow retrieval of tropospheric constituents. The OMI contains various new and innovative design elements such as a polarisation scrambler and programmable CCD read-out modes. This paper discusses the overall design of the OMI together with the instrumental capabilities.
