Abstract
At Scientific and Production Association 'Typhoon' a complex of spectrometers intended for atmospheric ozone measurements from satellite 'Meteor' was designed. The complex consists of two instruments: BUFS-3 and BUFS-4. On-board ultraviolet spectrometer BUFS-3 with the direction of view in the nadir is intended for measurements of total ozone in the atmospheric column (TO), vertical ozone profiles in the atmosphere (VO), as well as the pressure at the height of underlying surface [the height of clouds upper level (UC)]. On-board ultraviolet spectrometer BUFS-4 with the scan of field of view within the range of +/- 52.5 degrees is intended for mapping TO and UC. The development of BUFS-3/BUFS-4 was conducted on the base of analysis of practical work on orbit both of our previous instruments BUFS-1 and BUFS-2 and a similar USA complex SBUV/TOMS. The main differences of BUFS-3 and BUFS-4 from predecessors: the presence of channels for UC measurements, a simple optical scheme, advanced algorithm of measurements, an advanced system of instruments calibration on orbit.
