Short summary
The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2) flies on the Metop series of satellites. In this paper we will provide an overview of the instrument design, the on-ground calibration and characterization activities, in-flight calibration, and level 0 to 1 data processing. The information contained in this paper summarizes a large number of technical reports and related documents containing information that is not currently available in the published literature.
