The WMO 2014 Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion is available here.
The ozone layer protects life on Earth from ultraviolet solar radiation and plays an important role on the radiation budget of the atmosphere. Its evolution is intimately coupled to climate change. Ozone_cci aims at generating new high-quality satellite data sets that are essential to assess the fate of atmospheric ozone and better understand its link with anthropogenic activities. Read more »

As part of the Ozone-CCI project, the full cloud-free dataset from IASI/MetOp which provides a twice daily global coverage, have been reprocessed with the latest FORLI-O3 V1. The figure shows the zonal representation as a function of time of daily IASI O3 number density (1x1012 molecules/cm3) at 35 km (top), 19 km (middle), 10 km (middle) and 6 km (bottom) which are altitude levels corresponding to maximum of sensitivity in four decorrelated partial columns.

As part of the Ozone-CCI project, the full OMI/Aura mission has been recently reprocessed using the BIRA-IASB total ozone retrieval algorithm GODFITv3. With a high spatial resolution and a daily full coverage, the OMI instrument allows a careful monitoring of the atmosphere and of the specific events, such as the ozone hole. Read more »
