Short summary
This paper presents an improved tropospheric nitrogen dioxide (NO2) retrieval algorithm from the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2) instrument based on air mass factor (AMF) calculations that are performed with a more accurate knowledge of surface albedo, the a priori NO2 profile, and cloud and aerosol corrections.
