Short summary
This work provides a description and validation of significantly updated algorithm for the retrieval of atmospheric ozone profiles, with a focus on the sensitivity to ozone in the lower troposphere. The satellite-derived ozone profiles are validated against ozonesondes globally, and achieves an average bias of 6% in the lower troposphere. The global distribution is also compared to the ozone distribution from a chemistry transport model, with an average agreement of less than 2 Dobson units.
