Ozone - ESRL

Sample product of NOAA CDR Ozone ESRL; it depicts ozone concentration for a given point across the globe.

The dataset provides a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of Ozone at multiple altitude or pressure levels.

The Ozone-Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) climate data record provides a vertically resolved, gap free monthly mean, zonal mean ozone data set that spans the period 1979 to 2007. Measurements from several different satellite instruments and over 130 ozonesonde stations globally comprise this data set. The Ozone-ESRL climate data record encompasses 70 altitude or pressure levels, spanning the atmosphere from the Earth’s surface up to 70km or ~0.05hPa, and both ozone volume mixing ratio and ozone number density. This CDR suits assessment of ozone fields from chemistry–climate model simulations or provision of ozone boundary conditions for global climate model simulations that do not treat stratospheric chemistry interactively.
