Short summary
Ozone absorption cross sections measured in the laboratory using spectroscopic means can be a major source of uncertainty in atmospheric ozone retrievals. In this paper we assess the overall uncertainty in three published UV ozone cross-section datasets that are most popular in the remote sensing community. The overall uncertainties were estimated using Monte Carlo simulations. They are important for traceability of atmospheric ozone measuring instruments to common metrological standards.
