Minimize Trace Gases

DLR has been producing on an operational basis a range of total column trace gases and cloud products for GOME/ERS-2 in the framework of ESA's German processing and archiving facility (D-PAF) project. In the same way, DLR produces total column trace gases and cloud products for GOME-2/MetOp in the framework of EUMETSAT's Satellite Application Facility on Ozone - and Atmospheric Chemistry Monitoring (O3MSAF).

The trace gases total column products are: Ozone (O3), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Bromide monoxide (BrO), Sulphur dioxide (SO2), Water vapour (H2O), Formaldehyde (HCHO), Chlorine dioxide (OClO), Glyoxal (CHOCHO)

The trace gases tropospheric column products are: Nitrogen dioxide, Ozone, Bromide monoxide

Additionally DLR provides the following cloud properties derived from GOME measurements: Cloud fraction (CF), Cloud-top albedo (CTA) and cloud optical thickness (COT), Cloud-top height (CTH) and cloud-top pressure (CTP)
