An update global ozone data set (1979-2005) derived from SAGE I and II data, plus polar ozonesondes, as described in Randel and Wu (2007).
A global ozone data set has been derived for use in global climate modeling studies. The data cover the time period 1979-2005 with monthly resolution, for altitudes up to 50 km. Interannual ozone variations are derived from a combination of SAGE I+II satellite data and polar ozonesondes (illustrated in the schematic below). The interannual changes are combined with the climatological ozone data set of Fortuin and Kelder (1998), to provide a complete data set.
