Dataset Title NDACC-France SAOZ ground based long-term measurements of anthropogenic/natural changes in the atmospheric chemical composition in different international stations
Dataset Purpose International network for long-term monitoring of the stratosphere and the high troposphere established in 1991. Objectives include the detection of natural or anthropogenic changes in the atmospheric chemical composition and temperature, studies of interactions between atmospheric chemistry and climate, and long-term validation of similar measurements from available satellites
Dataset Abstract The NDACC (Network for Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change), formerly NDSC (Network for Detection of Stratospheric Change), is an international network for long-term monitoring of the stratosphere and the high troposphere established in 1991. Objectives include the detection of natural or anthropogenic changes in the atmospheric chemical composition and temperature, studies of interactions between atmospheric chemistry and climate, and long-term validation of similar measurements from available satellites. French activities are grouped in the Service d’Observation NDACC-France of CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)/INSU (Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers) coordinated nationally by OVSQ (Observatoire de l’université de Versailles). They are funded by several entities including CNRS/INSU, as well as CNES (Centre National des Etudes Spatiales), IPEV (Institut Paul-Emile Victor), the region of La Reunion, and several partner universities.
Acquisition Methodology SAOZ is UV-Visible (300-650 nm) diode array spectrometer developed at the Service d’Aéronomie in the late 80’s for monitoring stratospheric ozone after the discovery of the ozone hole by Farman et al. in 1985. It is a diode array flat field spectrometer of 1 nm resolution looking at sunlight scattered at zenith during twilight. The data analysed by Differential Optical Absorption Spectrometry allow the retrieval of daily ozone and NO2 total columns at sunrise and sunset, as well as total water vapour and oxygen dimmer and the detection of Polar Stratospheric Clouds (PSC) and volcanic aerosols.
Quality SAOZ data V3 consolidated till 2013 (http://saoz.obs.uvsq.fr/SAOZ_consol_v3.html). Consolidated V3 data from Salekhard station are not yet available and for V2 since September 2009. V3 of O3 retrieval was validated, whereas V3 of NO2 retrieval it is not yet validated. See Hendrick et al., (2011) and Roscoe et al., (2010) for further details.
