    An orbit of retrievals at across-track position 16 (in the UV-1 channel) on 11 July 2006 as a function of latitude, longitude, and solar zenith angle. (a) Ozone profiles in number density, and (b) the effective cloud fraction (black), fitted surface albedo (purple) for the UV-2 channel, and effective cloud-top pressure (red) used in the retrievals. The white line in (a) indicates the NCEP thermal tropopause.06.



    A global map of tropospheric ozone column (with NCEP tropopause) on August 26, 20




    Longitudinal cross sections of ozone volume mixing ratio from the surface to 100 hPa at 10.5S and 35.5N, corresponding to the dashed white lines in Fig. 8. The retrieved partial ozone columns are interpolated to a finer vertical grid and are converted to volume mixing ratio. The white lines indicate the NCEP tropopause.
