Higher accuracy global ozone data

Editor’s Highlight—

 

This paper presents the results of a major, international effort to homogenize and reprocess ozonesonde data for consistency. This large data set is used by many satellite and modeling groups. The results in this paper demonstrate the value of the reprocessing, and for those who’ve used this data in prior studies, they should be alerted to the improved quality of the new version of the data. This revision of the data now puts the data accuracy at 5 percent, the target for satellite validation, and the “gold standard” for ozone measurement.
