This paper defines scientific requirements for the Ozone Dynamics Ultraviolet Spectrometer (ODUS). ODUS is a cross- track scanning spectrometer like Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) developed by NASA. This instrument is planned to be flown on the Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM)-A1 satellite. ODUS measures solar ultraviolet radiation backscattered from the Earth's atmosphere. This study examines the necessity and feasibility of retrieval algorithms for total ozone, volcanic sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and several other constituents related to ozone chemistry and summarizes requirement definitions for specifications of the ODUS instrument. Finally, we review the conformance of the development policy for retrieval algorithms with the current specifications of the ODUS instrument.
