Wolfgang Lengert(1)

(1) ERS Mission Manager-ESA, Via Galileo Galilei, 00044 Frascati, Italy

Abstract

The ERS missions constitute a landmark in atmospheric scientific research with the introduction of satellite-borne sensors such as GOME.

The status and history of the two ERS missions with background on their use as supports for atmospheric science will be presented. The continued expected lifetimes of the missions is also outlined.

Finally, the GOME instrument will be largely focussed on, with presentation of its different products and the quality status of each.
