Target species and instruments

In the project, mesospheric measurements from six satellite instruments have been used to create homogenized L2 data sets, L3 climatologies, and merged data sets. The mesospheric target species and their source instruments are indicated in the table below. There are 14 targets including, e.g., ozone, greenhouse gases such as CO2 and CH4, and species specific to mesospheric-lower thermospheric altitudes such as Na and Mg.

Target species. For each target-instrument combination, the responsible institute is indicated when a data set is available.
