Tegtmeier, S., Fioletov, V., & Mclinden, C. A. (2009). Technical Note: a Combined Sbuv and Sage Zonal-mean Ozone Data Set : Volume 9, Issue 3 (20/05/2009). Retrieved from

Description: Environment Canada, Toronto, Canada. A stratospheric monthly, zonal-mean combined ozone data set based on Satellite Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE) and Solar Backscatter UltraViolet (SBUV) data spanning 1978–2005 is presented. Drifts in individual SBUV instruments and inter-SBUV biases are corrected using SAGE I and II by calculating differences between coincident SAGE-SBUV measurements. In this way the daily, near-global coverage of SBUV(/2) is combined with the stability of SAGE to provide a homogeneous ozone record. The resultant data set shows, for example, a more realistic Quasi-Biennial Oscillation signal compared to the one derived from SBUV data alone. Furthermore, this methodology can be used to extend the present data set beyond the lifetime of SAGE II.
