Currently there are two Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2) instrument operating in tanden on board EUMETSAT's Metereological Operational Satellites (MetOp-A and MetOp-B). GOME-2 can measure 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. DLR generates operational GOME-2/MetOp level 2 products in the framework of EUMETSAT's Satellite Application Facility on Ozone and Atmospheric Chemistry Monitoring (O3M-SAF). GOME-2 near-real-time products are available already two hours after sensing.
NOTE: Metop-A+B images are for demonstrational purposes only, such multi-satellite products are neither processed nor disseminated.
