The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) is a NASA satellite instrument for measuring ozone values. Of the five TOMS instruments which were built, four entered successful orbit. Nimbus 7 and Meteor provided global measurements of total column ozone on a daily basis and together provided a complete data set of daily ozone from November. NASA ozone and air quality data, imagery, and analysis, located at Goddard Space Flight Center. This document is a guide to the data products derived from the measurements made by the Earth Probe Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (EP/TOMS), and processed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It discusses the calibration of the instrument, the algorithm used to derive ozone values from the measurements. This document is a guide to the data products obtained from the measurements by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) experiment aboard the Nimbus-7 satellite. It discusses the calibration of the instrument, the algorithm used to derive ozone values from the measurements, the uncertainties of the data on the tapes, and the tape structure.

ozone amount in a layer in the derived total ozone. An ideal total ozone algorithm should have EF of one at all altitudes. For TOMS V8, the EF is nearly 1 in the stratosphere, but is ~ in the lowest 5 km layer of the atmosphere, indicating that TOMS total ozone under-represents changes in ozone near the Size: KB. The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer, launched in July onboard an Earth Probe Satellite (TOMS/EP), continues NASA's long-term daily mapping of the global distribution of the Earth's atmospheric ozone. TOMS/EP will again take high-resolution measurements of the total column amount of ozone from space that began with NASA's Nimbus-7 satellite in and continued with the TOMS . The total ozone mapping spectrometer (TOMS) instrument measured total column ozone continuously from its launch onboard the Nimbus 7 spacecraft in late October until it ceased to function on May 6, These data were processed as version 6 using an improved long-term instrument calibra- tion in [Herman et al., a]. Trend of total column ozone (TCO) over twelve Indian stations using TOMS data for the period – has been studied. It is observed that TCO is significantly dominated by quasi biennial.

In this paper, TOMS 5 total ozone and three approaches to derive total ozone from GOME measurements are validated with ground-based Dobson network data. Beyond the operational prod-ucts of both instruments, e.g. TOMS Version 7 and GOME Data Processor Version , total ozone is calculated by integrating FURM ozone profiles and by applying the. Toms V. T. Thomas a.k.a. Toms is a cartoonist from Kerala, India. He is the creator of the cartoon characters Boban and Molly. Toms was born at Pulincunnoo Kuttanad in as the son of V.T. Kunjuthomman and Cicily Thomas. The analysis results about total ozone and simulated UV backscatter radiance shows: Radiance in nm (R₃₁₇.₅) decreased as the total ozone rise. Under the small solar zenith Angle (SZA) and the same total ozone, R₃₁₇.₅ decreased with the increase of view zenith Angle (VZA) but Author: Lü Cg, Wang Wh, Yang Wb, Tian Qi, Lu S, Chen Y. sured by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) aboard Nimbus-7 (–) and Earth Probe (EP, –) satellites. EP/TOMS provides total ozone content at a horizon-tal resolution of about 40 km globally at local noon-time (McPeters et al., ). The data resolution from the level-2 EP/TOMS used in this study is thus about.
