Short summary
In this paper, we have assessed the sensitivity of the operational Ozone Monitoring Instrument ozone profile retrieval algorithm to a number of a priori and radiative transfer assumptions. We then modified the algorithm to improve the retrieval of tropospheric ozone. We found that the modified retrieval unmasks systematic problems in the radiative transfer/instrument model and is more sensitive to tropospheric ozone variation: it is able to capture the tropospheric ozone morphology better.
