On the assimilation of Martian total ozone retrievals

Holmes, J.A.; Lewis, S.R.; Patel, M.R. and Lefèvre, F. (2018). On the assimilation of Martian total ozone retrievals. In: Mars Atmosphere Data Assimilation (MADA) workshop, 29-31 Aug 2018, Savoie Technolac, Le Bourget-du-Lac, France.


The technique of data assimilation gives us an opportunity to further our understanding of important photochemical processes in the Martian atmosphere, through the creation of a reanalysis product that can be used to investigate the temporal and spatial agreement between model and observations and determine any possible causes of identified differences. In this study [1], we have assimilated, for the first time, total ozone retrievals into a Mars Global Circulation model (GCM) to study the ozone cycle.
