Short summary
This paper presents a new ozone profile inversion algorithm for GOMOS/Envisat satellite data. This algorithm is enhanced with a DOAS-type method at visible wavelengths in the upper troposphere and the lower stratosphere. The new GOMOS ozone profiles have a significantly improved data quality in the UTLS compared to the official IPF V6 ozone profiles. The paper describes the inversion algorithm and present inter-comparisons with ozonesonde and satellite measurements.
