NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Zonal Mean Ozone Binary Database of Profiles (BDBP), version 1.0

Ozone - ESRL; NOAA Ozone ESRL CDR

browse graphicGlobal Annual Ozone Mean for 1996
This NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Zonal Mean Ozone Binary Database of Profiles (BDBP) dataset is a vertically resolved, global, gap-free and zonal mean dataset that was created with a multiple-linear regression model. The dataset has a monthly resolution and spans the period 1979 to 2007. It provides global product in 5 degree zonal bands, and 70 vertical levels of the atmosphere. The regression is based on monthly mean ozone concentrations that were calculated from several different satellite instruments and global ozone soundings. Due to the regression model that was used to create the product, various basis function contributions are provided as unique levels or tiers. To understand the different contributions of basis functions, the data product is provided in five different "Tiers". - Tier 0: raw monthly mean data that was used in the regression model - Tier 1.1: Anthropogenic influences (as determined by the regression model) - Tier 1.2: Natural influences (as determined by the regression model) - Tier 1.3: Natural and volcanic influences (as determined by the regression model) - Tier 1.4: All influences (as determined by the regression model, CDR variable)

Dataset Information
  • Ozone - ESRL - NOAA Landing Page
    The dataset provides advanced scientific researchers a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of ozone at multiple altitude or pressure levels. The monthly means that are the basis for the regression model can also be used for ozone data analyses directly, e.g. trend studies. However, these are not available for all months of the period 1979 to 2007, and not all latitude bands.

Purpose The dataset provides advanced scientific researchers a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of ozone at multiple altitude or pressure levels. The monthly means that are the basis for the regression model can also be used for ozone data analyses directly, e.g. trend studies. However, these are not available for all months of the period 1979 to 2007, and not all latitude bands.
Use Limitations
  • Since the dataset is based on regression model output, it does not represent direct measurements, but a best estimate on observed ozone concentrations. Trend analyses or process studies should therefore not be performed on the dataset. For a complete description of use limitations for this CDR, see Section 6, Assumptions and Limitations, in the respective Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document.
