Description of poam iii instrument

Description of POAM III Instrument

Launched on SPOT 4 satellite (CNES) on March 1998

Heliosynchronous quasi-polar orbit : HN (sunrise) – HS (sunset)

14 profiles/ day in each hemisphere (at the same latitude)

Between 54 – 71 °N

Between 62 - 87 °S

Solar occultation technique in UV- visible band

Vertical profiles of O3, NO2, H2O, O2

Vertical resolution

1 km for O3

1.5 to 2.5 km for NO2

HN

varying with season

HS


Poam iii validation results

POAM III Validation results


List of profiles available

List of profiles available

  • Since July 2002

  • Monthly “package” for each hemisphere

  • from July to November 2002.

  • Profiles of O3, NO2, H2O, O2 and aerosol extinction coefficient at 1018 nm

  • Profiles of Pressure and Temperature from NMC analysis

  • Very soon : December POAM III profiles

  • Future developments : all aerosol extinction coefficient profiles and …

  • all errors bars (for all constituents)

  • - POAM III HDF data Version 2 -


Example of profiles poam iii and gomos

Example of profiles POAM III and GOMOS

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Comparison and validation programs are now ready for ENVISAT instruments validation

  • Reading PDS format programs not yet well mastered (several problems with Enviview)

  • Extraction of ENVISAT instrument profiles still hard working …

    • Waiting for GOMOS aerosol extinction coefficients profiles

    • Waiting for newGOMOS processing for O3, O2, NO2, H2O

    • MIPAS profiles coincident with POAM III available ?

    • First SCIAMACHY profiles are waited in January 2003
