Short summary
This work discusses the most frequent methods for the harmonization of vertically resolved atmospheric state observations in a conceptually and terminologically aligned framework. Ten matching operations have been identified and expressed by common matrix algebra. The effect of these manipulations on the information content of the original data and on the uncertainty budget of data comparisons has been examined and discussed.
