At the ENVISAT symposium 2007 in Montreux a poster is presented with goals and status of ADAGUC
ADAGUC at EGU General Assembly 2007 in Vienna
Goals and current status of ADAGUC will be presented in an oral presentation
ADAGUC at National Geo Information Days in Rotterdam
ADAGUC presented 2 posters to the Dutch Geoinformation community in the former van Nelle factory in Rotterdam.
ADAGUC success in Geo-Connected
ADAGUC will receive an additional grant for a top-up project, dealing with climate and forecast data. The Geo-Connected tender has been issued by RGI to establish bridges between research programs.
Presentations workshop 2006 online
The presentations of the ADAGUC workshop are now online. You can access them
SCIAMACHY Total Ozone
(TOSOMI) Product Description
1.1. Product description
total ozone column is retrieved from SCIAMACHY nadir observations
with an algorithm based on the Differential Optical Absorption
Spectroscopy (DOAS) method. The TOSOMI algorithm consists of three
steps. First, the reference differential absorption spectrum of ozone
is fitted to the measured Earth radiance spectrum and solar
irradiance spectrum, to obtain the slant column density. In the
second step the slant column density is translated into the vertical
column density using the so-called air mass factor (AMF). The third
step consists of a correction for the screening of ozone below
the concentrations of stratospheric ozone.
total ozone is used for improving numerical weather forecasts,
monitoring the ozone hole, studying climate change and for other

The TOGOMI algorithm consists of three steps.
First, the reference differential absorption spectrum of ozone is
fitted to the measured Earth radiance spectrum and solar irradiance
spectrum, to obtain the slant column density. In the second step the
slant column density is translated into the vertical column density
using the so-called air mass factor (AMF). The third step consists of
a correction for the screening of ozone below clouds.
