validation summary SCIAMACHY OL v3.01 and v5.01 O3 column data are consistent with GAW ground-based data records. There are slight differences between the two versions, usually in the form of a bias < 0.6%. Drifts noticed with version 3.01 at numerous but not all stations persist with version 5.01. Uncertainties increase at large SZA and at low Total Column O3. The introduction of the degradation correction improves on the drift in the tropics, but not on mid to high latitudes and is it questioned whether such a zonally structured is preferred over a zonally more homogeneous trend.
available data Data from August 2002 to April 2012 processed with OL 5.02 can be ordered via the ESA EO Principal Investigator Portal. Currently data are being reprocessed with the updated OL 5.02.
