Paper Abstract

The TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) is a UV/VIS/NIR/SWIR non-scanning nadir viewing imaging spectrometer that combines a wide swath (110°) with high spatial resolution (8 x 8 km). Its main heritages are from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) and from SCIAMACHY. Since its launch in 2004 OMI has been providing, on a daily basis and on a global scale, a wealth of data on ozone, NO2 and minor trace gases, aerosols and local pollution, a scanning spectrometer launched in 2004. The TROPOMI UV/VIS/NIR and SWIR heritage is a combination of OMI and SCIAMACHY. In the framework of development programs for a follow-up mission for the successful Ozone Monitoring Instrument, we have developed the so-called TROPOMI Integrated Development Environment. This is a GRID based software simulation tool for OMI follow-up missions. It includes scene generation, an instrument simulator, a level 0-1b processing chain, as well as several level 1b-2 processing chains. In addition it contains an error-analyzer, i.e. a tool to feedback the level 2 results to the input of the scene generator. The paper gives a description of the TROPOMI instrument and focuses on design aspects as well as on the performance, as tested in the end-to-end development environment TIDE.
