The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) was launched on April 1995 on board ESA's second European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS-2) and was deactivated in July 2011.
This instrument measured a range of atmospheric trace constituents, with the emphasis on global ozone distributions. Furthermore cloud properties and intensities of ultraviolet radiation are retrieved. These data are crucial for monitoring the atmospheric composition and the detection of pollutants and climate changes. DLR generates the operational GOME/ERS-2 level 1 and level 2 products on behalf ESA. GOME Near Real Time (NRT) products were available three hours after sensing. The NRT service was started in 1997 by setting up the GOME Data Processor at Kiruna station. Later on the GOME raw data was transmitted from all ERS-2 receiving stations, including the DLR Antarctic station at O'Higgins, to the DLR for further processing.
