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.
