Short summary
A version 2 processing of data from the OMPS nadir ozone mapper and nadir ozone profiler on Suomi NPP has now been completed. Total column ozone data from the OMPS nadir mapper now agree with data from the SBUV/2 instrument on NOAA 19, with a zonal average bias of −0.2 % over the 60° S to 60° N latitude zone. For the profile retrieval, zonal average ozone in the upper stratosphere (between 2.5 and 4 hPa) agrees with that from NOAA 19 within ±3 % and an average bias of −1.1 %.
