Detailed Description

Tabulated high resolution cross-sections of O3 measured by Serdyuchenko et al. 2011. These are a new generation of cross-sections with measurements from 193 K to 293 K in 10 K steps at high resolution.

The Serdychenko measurements try to avoid the limitations of interpolation by making twice as many meautrements. Measurements are provided at the following eleven temperatures,
  1. 193 K
  2. 203 K
  3. 213 K
  4. 223 K
  5. 233 K
  6. 243 K
  7. 253 K
  8. 263 K
  9. 273 K
  10. 283 K
  11. 293 K

In this article, we report on the research to improve our knowledge of the ozone absorption cross-sections. This is required for active and passive remote sensing applications yielding the total column and profiles of ozone. New laboratory measurements provide data for a wide spectral range in the ultraviolet (UV), visible (vis) and near infrared (NIR) regions at a spectral resolution of 0.02 nm. An absolute accuracy of about 3% or better and wavelength accuracy better than 0.005 nm throughout the spectral range have been achieved at 11 temperatures from 195 K to 293 K.

Comparison of the available ozone cross-sections with our new dataset shows good agreement within the uncertainty limits. This new cross-section dataset improves the ozone data quality which is required for stratospheric ozone trend studies and the determination of tropospheric ozone abundance.

Ozone is the most important trace gas in both the stratosphere and the troposphere. The global monitoring of the ozone concentration, using both satellite-borne and ground-based instruments, plays a key role in the determination of the long-term trends for the stratospheric ozone layer, which protects the biosphere from harmful UVB radiation and air quality related studies.

The requirement to measure small changes in stratospheric and tropospheric ozone places strong demands on the accuracy of the ozone absorption cross-sections used in retrievals of the spectra delivered by remote sensing spectrometers. Several satellite spectrometers have been used to measure low-resolution cross-sections pre-flight (SCIAMACHY, GOME and GOME-2 flight models).1,2,3 These datasets have the great advantage of automatically incorporating the instrumental slit functions. However, use of these datasets is not straightforward for other instruments. In the report for the Absorption Cross Sections of Ozone (ACSO) committee, Weber et al.4 consider the impact of cross-section choice on total ozone retrieval applied to GOME, SCIAMACHY and GOME-2 and discuss necessary resolution matching, wavelength shifts and scalings. [The ACSO committee was established by the World Meteorological Organization and the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences to review and recommend ozone cross-sections for all the commonly used (both ground-based and satellite) atmospheric ozone monitoring instruments.]

Among high-resolution datasets, the most important are the so-called data of Bass–Paur5,6 and data of Malicet, Daumont, Brion et al.7 (and references cited therein). Regardless of the high quality of these data, they have serious limitations, leaving room for improvement. Both datasets are based on experimental data acquired at only five temperatures, compelling researchers to use interpolation for other temperatures. In addition, these datasets only cover the limited UV and vis spectral regions.

More details on ozone cross-sections obtained before 2003 can be found in a comprehensive overview by Orphal.8 Relevant data are available, for example, from the online spectral atlas of gaseous molecules of the Max-Planck-Institute for Chemistry, Mainz9 or from the ACSO home page.10

The new accurate broadband cross-sections determined in this study have inherent advantages over the previous datasets to the maximum possible extent. The data were obtained for 11 temperatures down to 195 K. For convenient use in various current and future projects, the new dataset uniquely combines a broad spectral coverage from 220 nm to 1000 nm with spectral resolution as high as 0.02 nm. This dataset enables accurate convolution with the slit functions of all currently relevant ground-based and satellite-based remote sensing ­instruments.
