Short summary
The main aim of the paper is to demonstrate an approach for the post-processing of the Dobson spectrophotometers' total ozone columns (TOCs) in order to compensate for their known stratospheric effective temperature dependency and its resulting effect on the usage of the Dobson TOCs for satellite TOCs' validation.
