Data sets

SAGE II version 7.0 ozone data (NetCDF) S. Kremser, L. W. Thomason, and L. J. Bird

Short summary
Since space-based measurements of stratospheric composition started, a plethora of generally accepted screening methods have been developed and tailored to each measurement system and to each anticipated use of the data. These methods are often inconsistent, ad hoc, and untraceable and are seldom revised even after significant revisions to the data themselves. Here we developed new and simplified SAGE II ozone data usage rules that are based on how the measurements were made.
