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

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 -

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
