Ground-based remote sensing of O3 by high- and medium-resolution FTIR spectrometers over the Mexico City basin

Data sets

A dataset of atmospheric ozone above the Mexico City basin retrieved from FTIR remote sensing observations made at two different ground altitudes Eddy Francis Plaza-Medina, Wolfgang Stremme, Alejandro Bezanilla, Michel Grutter, Matthias Schneider, Frank Hase, and Thomas Blumenstock

Short summary
We present data and error estimations of O3 profiles retrieved from spectra measured by a medium- and a high-resolution FTIR spectrometer (located at 2260 m and 3985 m a.s.l.). Above the tropopause both data sets agree well and in accordance with the estimated errors. We introduce a product that combines the two FTIR retrieval results, and a comparison to Mexico City in situ data indicates that the combined product is able to capture the highly varying boundary layer O3 concentrations.
