Minimize GOME Design

GOME, a nadir-scanning ultraviolet and visible spectrometer for global monitoring of atmospheric Ozone, was launched on-board ERS-2 in April 1995. Since summer 1996, ESA has been delivering to users three-day GOME global observations of total ozone, nitrogen dioxide and related cloud information, via CD-ROM and internet. A key feature of GOME is its ability to detect other chemically active atmospheric trace-gases as well as aerosol distribution.
