Paper Abstract

The ozone monitoring instrument (OMI) onboard the EOS/AURA satellite was launched on 15. July 2004. The OMI products include among other things total column ozone, total column NO2, cloud characteristics, aerosol optical thickness and single scattering albedo, SO2, UV-B, HCHO and BrO. A first validation of the products has been performed, a more thoroughly validation is now being performed. In this presentation we show comparisons of OMI retrieved ozone and ground UV with ground measured UV and ozone at Sonnblick (12.8 E, 47.05 N, 3106 m altitude).
