Abstract : Ozone profiles retrieved from limb scattering measurements of the SCIAMACHY instrument based on the satellite ENVISAT are compared to ground based low altitude resolution remote sensors. All profiles are retrieved using optimal estimation. Following the work of 5 Rodgers and Connor 2003 the retrievals of the ground based instruments are simulated using the SCIAMACHY retrieval. The SCIAMACHY results and the results of the ground based microwave radiometer in Bremen and Ny Alesund agree within the expected covariance of the intercomparison. There are not enough coincident measurements of the FTIR instrument in order to allow for a conlusive statistical 10 treatment. However, preliminary intercomparison results are presented.
