27 January 1997 Pre- and in-flight calibration of GOME
Author Affiliations +
The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) was launched onboard the ERS2 satellite in April 1995. In order to study atmospheric trends over a very long time, the instrument was calibrated on ground very accurately. Obviously the accuracy has to be guaranteed during the lifetime of the instrument. Therefore, since the instrument in space is susceptible to changes and degradation, changes in the instrument performance have to be monitored, as was done during the GOME in-orbit validation phase.
