Short summary
Comparisons between satellite and ground-based measurements of the atmosphere are inevitably affected by natural variability due to mismatches in spatial and temporal co-location. These additional terms in the comparison error budget are quantified here for total ozone column comparisons using an Observing System Simulation Experiment. Even when using tight co-location criteria, atmospheric variability is found to impact the comparisons significantly.
