|TEMIS: Operational Ozone forecasting service|
|The TEMIS consortium has developed a fully operational Ozone forecasting service by using assimilation techniques which combine a model with ENVISAT-SCIAMACHY measurements.|
|This provides a reliable possibility to look into the future on global ozone distribution, more than one week ahead.
The data can be used to provide the erythemal UV index, valid for clear-sky conditions at local solar noon, for today and the next few days.
Most UV forecasting services in Europe are currently still based on pure modelling.
The possibility to monitor Air Pollution from Space is being currently demonstrated within the TEMIS project using the unique measurement capabilities of the SCIAMACHY instrument.
