Short summary
This paper addresses the validation procedures for the GSFC TROPOZ DIAL retrieval algorithm and develops a primary standard for retrieval consistency and optimization within the Tropospheric Ozone Lidar Network (TOLNet). The methodology presented may be extended to most DIAL instruments, even if the atmospheric product of interest is not tropospheric ozone. The TROPOZ retrieval has been effective in retrieving ozone nearly 200m lower to the surface and has reduced the mean profile bias by 3.5%.
