Comparison of total ozone retrieved from NOAA satellite and measured from Dobson spectrophotometer over Indian region
Keywords:Ozone, Retrieve, Satellite, Dobson's spectrophotometer, NOAA D-values
An attempt has been made to compare the total ozone retrieved from HIRS channel-9 of NOAA-12 satellite using ITPP software at the facility of lMDPS, New Delhi with that of conventional Dobson spectrophotometer over Indian network stations. The satellite-retrieved total ozone agrees within an accuracy of +-8% with that of Dobson-measured total ozone except during the passage of a weather system over the Indian region. It is seen that whenever a western disturbance is passing over north India and neighbourhood, the difference between the satellite-retrieved and Dobson-measured total ozone becomes more than +- 8% (or +-20 DU).
