Abstract:Measures of total ozone at Lisbon in July 1996 taken with a differential optical absorption filter instrument (UAM-DOAF) and a Dobson spectrophotometer are compared. Correlation of the UAM-DOAF measures and NOAATOVS data from April to October 1996 and NASA Earth Probe TOMS data from July to October 1996 for Madrid (40 N, 3 W) are given. Results show that the UAM-DOAF instrument can be used with approximately a 3 per cent error in estimating short-term total ozone variations.
