The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) is a new instrument aboard ESA's 2nd European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS-2), which was launched in April 1995. The main scientiic objective of the GOME mission is to determine the global distribution of ozone and several other trace gases, which play an important role in the ozone chemistry of the Earth's(More)
A recently developed cloud retrieval algorithm for the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY (SCIAMACHY) is briefly presented and validated using independent and well tested cloud retrieval techniques based on the look-up-table approach for MODeration resolutIon Spectrometer (MODIS) data. The results of the cloud top height(More)
The AMAXDOAS instrument is an airborne multi-axis DOAS instrument covering the spectral range from 300 to 600 nm. During one flight of the SCIAVALUE campaign on 19 March 2003, the AMAXDOAS onboard the DLR Falcon detected tropospheric NO2 over Europe under both cloudy and cloud free conditions. By combining the measurements in nadir and zenith direction, and(More)
Chlorophyll fluorescence is directly linked to the photosynthetic efficiency of plants. As satellite-based remote sensing has been shown to have the potential to derive global information about fluorescence it has become subject of various recently published studies stimulating an upsurge in this research field. This manuscript presents a simple and fast(More)
This paper is devoted to the application of the Semi-Analytical Cloud Retrieval Algorithm (SACURA) to the cloud-top height determination using data from the Global Ozone Measurement Experiment (GOME) instrument onboard Earth Remote Sensing satellite (ERS-2). In particular, measurements of the top-of-atmosphere reflectance in the oxygen absorption A-band are(More)
This paper investigates the influence of horizontally inhomogeneous clouds on the accuracy of total ozone column retrievals from space. The focus here is on retrievals based on backscattered ultraviolet light measurements in Huggins bands in the range of 315–340 nm. It is found that simplifying the description of cloud properties in the ozone-retrieval(More)
