Short summary
This paper presents a comparison of operational vertical ozone profiles retrieved by OPERA algorithm from the GOME-2 measurements on board Metop-A with space borne high-vertical-resolution ozone profiles by GOMOS, OSIRIS and MLS. The overall agreement of ozone profiles from GOME-2 and reference instruments is within 15 % below 35–40 km depending on latitude. The GOME-2 ozone profiles from non-degradation corrected radiances have a tendency to underestimate the ozone concentration above 30 km.
