NASA's Experience with UV Remote Using SBUV and TOMS InstrumentsThis paper will discuss key features of the NASA algorithm that has been used to produce several highly popular geophysical products from the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SBUV) and Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) series of instruments. Since these instruments have a limited number of wavelengths, many innovative algorithmic approaches have been developed over the years to derive maximum information from these sensors. We will use Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) data to test the assumptions made in these algorithms and show what additional information is contained in the GOME hyperspectral data. At NASA we are using this information to improve the SBUV and TOMS algorithms, as well as to develop more efficient algorithms to process GOME data.
