The SBUV MERGED OZONE DATA SETS are monthly-mean zonal and gridded average products constructed by merging individual SBUV/SBUV/2 (total and profile ozone) satellite data sets. NO external calibration adjustment have been applied. Intercalibration of the SBUV instruments in Version 8.6 is accomplished within the algorithm at the radiance level. Remaining offsets (sub 10%, mostly sub 5% levels) between instruments exist, but their cause is not understood. We therefore do not make adjustments to the data. Rather we set limitations on the data included in the merged product based on data quality analysis by the instrument team and on comparisons with independent measurements. Details of the instruments/algorithm, data selection and construction of the final data sets are provided by following the links above.
|5° ZONAL MEAN||10° x 30° GRID MEAN|
**Note that the files above are in a new format that include both profile and total ozone data. The total ozone data in the previous format are available here.
