OMI Science Team Meeting
Helsinki, June 24-27, 2008
Aapo left FMI about three months ago.
Since then, I have been responsible for the scientific development of OMUVB, while Simo Tukiainen has been responsible for the processing related issues.

Provide a long term data set to:
Inherits from the TOMS UV algorithm based on look-up-tables made with various radiative transfer models.
Calculate clear-sky surface UV irradiance
Define cloud optical depth that gives the measured TOA radiance
Make cloud correction using the obtained
Absorbing aerosol correction to be added in the future
Erythemal dose rate both at overpass and at local solar noon (UV Index)
Erythemal daily dose
Irradiances at 305, 310, 324 and 380 nm both at overpass and at local solar noon
The OMI surface UV algorithm is implemented in two separate processing systems: OMI-VFD and Global OMUVB.
OMI Very-Fast-Delivery has been operational since March 2006
OMI data is received by Direct Broadcast in Sodankylä and is processed immediately after each overpass of the Aura satellite. Distribution plots for total column ozone, UV Index and Erythemal daily dose are published within 30 minutes after the overpass at
