SCIAMACHY SO2 vertical column (IFE) validation literature:
  • SO2 emissions and lifetimes: Estimates from inverse modeling using in situ and global, space based (SCIAMACHY and OMI) observations;
    Lee, C., R.V. Martin, A. van Donkelaar, H. Lee, R.R. Dickerson, J.C. Hains, N. Krotkov, A. Richter, K. Vinnikov and J.J. Schwab
    Abstract/Article: J. Geophys. Res, vol 116, D06304, doi:10.1029/2010JD014758, 2011
    Product: SO2 vertical column
    Institute: IUP/IFE, University of Bremen
    Method: Top down constraints on global SO2 emissions are inferred through inverse modeling using SO2 column observations from SCIAMACHY and OMI satellite instruments
  • SO2 Retrieval from SCIAMACHY using the Weighting Function DOAS (WFDOAS) technique: comparison with Standard DOAS retrieval
    Lee, C., A. Richter, M. Weber and J.P. Burrows
    Abstract/Article: Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics 8, 6137-6145, 2008
    Product: SO2 vertical column
    Institute: IUP/IFE University of Bremen
    Method: The WFDOAS SO2 retrieval from SCIAMACHY data are presented and compared to those of the Standard DOAS method for cases of background conditions and volcanic eruption
