These are precisions for recovering stratospheric concentration profiles, including all effects due to spacecraft pointing and jitter, weighting functions for absorption and, for limb scattering geometry, weighting functions for the scattering source.
Bold : Operational Products (NRT and OL)
Other : Scientific Products (feasible, but no operational retrieval)
? : Experimental Products (currently no sensitivity studies available)
! Polluted tropospheric conditions.
# Biogenic emissions and biomass burning.
§ Estimated knowledge of column above 40 km.
& Ozone hole conditions.
## the feasibility of the retrieval of SO2, BrO, OClO, HCHO and NO2 total column amount already shown by GOME.
