Science Update: Validation of global ozone profile measurements

In their JGR article, Koji Imai and numerous SPARC scientists as co-authors, present validation studies of ozone profiles in the middle atmosphere.

The data was taken by Superconducting Submillimeter-Wave Limb-Emission Sounder (SMILES) onboard the International Space Station ISS from October 2009 to April 2010. Comparisons of the data with satellite observations and chemistry-transport models indicate that the observations agree generally within 10%. The SMILES data also capture diurnal variability well.
