Iup dlr limb ozone retrieval

IUP & DLR limb ozone retrieval:

IUP V2.1 (L1 V6/V7):

central wavelength of the Chappuis triplet is shifted from 601 to 589 nm

Tikhonov parameter linearly decreases with altitude from 9 at 72 km to 3 at 7 km instead of constant value of 6

IUP V2.2:

Foward model is changed from SCIATRAN 2.2 to SCIATRAN 3.0

Spectral region: 2 nm spectral intervals centered around: 264 nm, 267.5, 273, 283, 286, 288, 290.5, and 305 (UV) as well as 525, 589, and 675 nm (Chappuis band)

Surface albedo: geographical database [Matthews, 1983]

IUP V2.3:

Use of a latitude dependent aerosol climatology ECSTRA [Bingen, 2000]

OP 5.1 (DLR operational retrieval on L1 V7 )

DOAS retrieval in Chappuis band

altitude coverage: 15-40 km (IUP retrieval: 10-70 km)


Differences between iup 2 1 2 3 and op5

Differences between IUP 2.1/2.3 and OP5

  • The differences between the IUP 2.1 and 2.3 are found mainly below 33 km down to the tropopause.

  • These are mainly due to the use of the ECSTRA aerosol climatology in IUP2.3. Another reason could be different p/T inputs, IUP uses ECWMF data.


Limb ozone verification op5 01 vs st2 3

Limb Ozone Verification: OP5.01 vs. ST2.3

201001-03

200301-04

Verification of OP5 with SCIATRAN 2.3: 4 months of data in 2003 and 2010 were used.

OP5 ozone is on average about 8% higher for all tangent heights. Results are similar for the years 2003 and 2010.

O3: Sun zenith angle dependency (200301-04)

  • The difference between both models is generally lower than 10% for all scenarios.

  • Highest differences are found in the lowest stratosphere below 20km. For higher SZAs we find differences (>10%) in the upper stratosphere.


Validation results o3

Validation results: O3

  • Validation with ozone sondes (GAW-contributing ground-based networks, see D. Hubert, SCIAVALIG validation meeting 09/2010): On average the SGP 5.01 processor showed ~10% higher O3 density values than SGP 3.01. O3 profiles retrieved with SGP 5.01 are of equivalent or better quality than those retrieved with SGP 3.01. E.G. Ascension 8°S(+10%), Uccle 50°N(~0%), Belgrano 78°S (+5%)

  • Comparison with lidar, sonde and microwave 2002-2004 (VALID, see talk J.A.E. van Gijsel, SCIAVALIG validation meeting 09/2010): positive bias in the tropics (~12%), midlatitudes (~7%), negative bias in the polar region(~-8%).


Summary o3 op5 1 vs iup 2 3

Summary O3 OP5.1 vs IUP 2.3

  • The IUP ozone retrieval in V2.3 was finetuned to reduce the high bias found in the tropical regions. This leads to less ozone found in the midlatitudes and polar regions.

  • Comparisons with the OP5.1 shows on average 8% lower values of the IUP2.3. This differs slightly for different latitude and sun zenith angle regions between 6 and 10%.

  • Highest differences above 10% were found in the upper stratosphere at high SZA and near the troposphere.

  • Comparing these results with the validation datasets:

    • Tropics: OP5.1 ~10% higher -> IUP2.3 more accurate as expected

    • Midlatitudes: “inconsistent” validation data: OP5.1 ~7% higher -> IUP2.3 possibly nearer to validation results

    • Polars: “inconsistent” validation data: OP5.1 +/-6% -> low bias of IUP2.3 can be expexted

Limb NO2: OP3/4 (from PM4) and OP5.1

OP5.01: comparison with IUP V3.1 (200301-04)

  • The OP5.1 NO2 gives basically the same results as OP4, which is as expected.


No2 summary

NO2: Summary

  • Differences between two retrievals of the OP5.1 and the IUP 3.1 are generally below 10% for the height range of 21 and 38 km.

  • Highest differences above 20% were found for high SZAs in the upper stratosphere and lowest stratosphere.


Limb bro all data 2003 01 04

Limb BrO: all data 2003 (01—04)

  • On average the differences between the BrO OP5.1 and IUP3.2 are below 10% between 20 and 30 km, but the scatter is 50% and more. These results are as expected.


Bro time dependent differences

BrO: time dependent differences

  • Comparing data from 2003 and 2010:

    • The differences between both models are slightly increasing.

    • The scatter drastically increases.


Bro summary of results

BrO: Summary of results

  • On average both models OP5.1 and IUP3.2 give similar results.

  • The differences and the scatter found are higher in 2010 than in 2003.

  • The differences also depend on altitude, latitude, and SZA:

    • Polar NH: OP5.1 -15% (01/03) -> -5% (04/03), similar in 2010

    • Polar SH: OP5.1 +50% (01/03) -> +5% (04/03)

    • Tropics: OP5.1 -10% (30km) / +40%(20km), no change over time

  • Below about 9 km MIPAS has very low sensitivity.
