Near-real time total ozone column

European Space Agency



The total ozone column based on SCIAMACHY, GOME or OMI measurements were all delivered in near-real time, but this was stopped on 1 April 2021. The total ozone column is retrieved with DOAS-type algorithms, TOSOMI for SCIAMACHY, OMDOAO3 for OMI, TOGOMI for GOME.
