Paper Abstract

The Ozone Monitoring Instrument is an UV-Visible imaging spectrograph using two-dimensional CCD detectors to register both the spectrum and the swath perpendicular to the flight direction. This allows having a wide swath (114 degrees) combined with a small ground pixel (nominally 13 x 24 km2). The instrument is planned for launch on NASA’s EOS-AURA satellite in January 2004. The on-ground calibration measurement campaign of the instrument was performed May-October 2002, data is still being analyzed to produce the calibration key data set. The paper highlights selected topics from the calibration campaign, the radiometric calibration, spectral calibration including a new method to accurately calibrate the spectral slitfunction and results from the zenith sky measurements and gas cell measurements that were performed with the instrument.
