algorithm description SCIAMACHY radiances are fitted directly using a nonlinear least-squares procedure. Fitting includes HCHO and interfering species, Ring effect, and correction for spectral undersampling and wavelength mismatch between radiances and irradiances.
Slant columns are converted to vertical columns using air mass factors calculated with the SAO LIDORT radiative transfer code using HCHO distribution derived from calculations using the GEOS-CHEM 3-D tropospheric chemistry and transport model.
