Distribution of Tropical Tropospheric Ozone Determined by the Scan-Angle Method Applied to TOMS Measurements

Abstract

This work describes the first method to determine the tropical tropospheric ozone column directly from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) space-borne instrument based on the physical differences in ozonecolumn detection as a function of its scan-angle geometry. Comparisons to tropical ozonesonde observations suggest the accuracy of these retrievals… (More)
