Author Affiliations +
In-flight performance and calibration results of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument OMI, successfully launched on 15 July 2004 on the EOS-AURA satellite, are presented and discussed. The radiometric calibration in comparison to the high-resolution solar irradiance spectrum from the literature convolved with the measured spectral slit function is presented. A correction algorithm for spectral shifts originating from inhomogeneous ground scenes (e.g. clouds) is discussed. Radiometric features originating from the on-board reflection diffusers are discussed, as well as the accuracy of the calibration of the instrument's viewing properties. It is shown that the in-flight performance of both CCD detectors shows evidence of particle hits by trapped high-energetic protons, which results in increased dark currents and increase in the Random Telegraph Signal (RTS) behaviour.
