We will update both our total ozone and profile ozone merged data sets. These now extend from 1978 into 2008 using data from SBUV, TOMS, and OMI. We will combine these data sets with modeling studies from the GEOS CCM to attempt to understand the competing contributions of ozone depleting substances (ODS) and greenhouse gases (GHG) on ozone. Preliminary modeling studies indicate that by about 2010 or so, we may be able to separate the impacts of ODS and GHG from the time signature of ozone data. This is crucially dependent on the quality and consistency of the ozone data. The separation of these signals is critical to demonstrating the attribution of ozone recovery to the effects of the Montreal Protocol.
