SCIAMACHY HCHO validation literature:
  • SCIAMACHY formaldehyde observations: constraint for isoprene emission estimates over Europe
    Dufour, G., F. Wittrock, M. Camredon, M. Beekmann, A. Richter, B. Aumont and J.P. Burrows
    Abstract/Article: Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics 9, 1647-1664, 2009
    Method: The influence of the different emissions on HCHO tropospheric columns are investigated with the CHIMERE chemical transport model in order to interpret the comparisons between SCIAMACHY and simulated HCHO columns
  • Formaldehyde and nitrogen dioxide over the remote western Pacific Ocean: SCIAMACHY and GOME-2 validation using ship-based MAX-DOAS observations
    Peters, E., F. Wittrock, K. Großmann, U. Frieß, A. Richter and J.P. Burrows
    Abstract/Article: Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics 12, 11179-11197, 2012
