Assessment and improvement of the polarisation correction algorithm of GOME

Abstract:

We have studied the errors in GOME radiances resulting solely from the operational polarisation correction of GOME signals. The assessment was made by simulating on a computer both the observation of various Earth scenes and the subsequent calibration of signals, as relevant to GOME. For 290-350 nm, errors are typically larger than 1%, sometimes even as large as 10 %. Especially for 305-315 nm, errors will usually be 2-5 %. For longer wavelengths (350-790 nm), errors are normally smaller than...
