Resumen : A Microtops II "ozone monitor" with UV channels centered at 305.5, 312.5, and 320 nm has been used routinely in six experimental campaigns carried out in several geographic locations and seasons, covering latitudes from 35 to 68° N during the last ten years (2001–2011). The total ozone content is retrieved by Microtops II by using different combinations (Channel I, 305.5/312.5 nm; Channel II, 312.5/320 nm; and Channel III, 305.5/312.5/320 nm) of the signals at the three ultraviolet wavelengths. The long-term performance of the total ozone content determination has been studied taking into account the sensitivities to the calibration, airmass, temperature and aerosols. When a calibration was used and the airmass limit was fixed to 3, the root mean square deviations of the relative differences produced by Microtops II with respect to several Brewers are 0.9, 2, and 2% respectively for the Channel I, Channel II, and Channel III retrieval. The performance of the Microtops retrieval has been stable during the last ten years. Channel I represents the best option to determine the instantaneous total ozone content. Channels II and III values appear weakly sensitive to temperature, ozone content, and aerosols. Channel II is more stable than Channel I for airmasses larger than 2.6. The conclusions do not show any dependence on latitude and season.
Patrocinador: This study was possible thanks to a postdoctoral fellowship funded by the Generalitat Valenciana in the case of J. L. G´omez Amo (in the framework of “Estancies postdoctorals en centres de Excellencia de la Comunitat Valenciana” programme) and a Juan de la Cierva research contract (JCI-2009-04455) in the case of V. Estell´es, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN). This work was also supported by the MICINN projects CGL2007-60648 and CGL2009-07790, and by the Valencian Autonomous Government through the Project PROMETEO/2010/064.
