Abstract


In this technical note, we compare the spatio-temporal distributions and variations of the ozone field in the UTLS obtained from the limb instruments participating in the ESA Climate Change Initiative for Ozone (Ozone_cci): MIPAS, SCIAMACHY and GOMOS on Envisat, OSIRIS on Odin, and ACE-FTS on SCISAT. We study seasonal variations and the influence of Asian Summer Monsoon on UTLS ozone. The observational distributions by Ozone_cci instruments are generally in good agreement. This consistency of the observed patterns allows creating Level 3 datasets and parameters, which can be useful for validation of chemistry climate models.
