MIRA 2 is in operation on Pico Espejo since March 2004. From the measurements
time series of the trace gases and the tropospheric transmission were retrieved.
The measurements will be used for ENVISAT validation.
Tropospheric transmission over Pico Espejo as measured by MIRA 2
between May 27th, 2004, and April 1st, 2008. A large scatter of the values is obvious.
For ozone measurements a tropospheric transmission of 5-10% is sufficient.
Ozone between May 27th, 2004, and April 1st, 2008, over Pico Espejo as measured by MIRA 2.
The upper panel shows the vmr profiles of the single days, the lower panel the ozone
Note the seasonal variation in the profiles as well as in the column amounts.
