Abstract

The algorithm used to derive total ozone from the Nimbus 4 Backscattered Ultraviolet (BUV) experiment is described. A seven-year global data set with more than one million retrievals has been produced and archived using this algorithm. The algorithm is a physical retrieval scheme using accurate radiative transfer computations. Error sources are discussed and verified using Dobson network comparisons and the statistics of the BUV A- and B-pair derived ozone values.
