Publications in peer-reviewed journals as well as many presentations and contributions proceedings of conferences have been released since the ENVISAT launch. A detailed list of papers and reports is given in Chapter 4 of this document.
The night-time ozone distribution in the stratosphere and in the mesosphere measured by GOMOS in 2003 is presented in [Kyrölä et al., 2006]. Results of the systematic comparison of O3 vertical profiles with external measurements are detailed in [Meijer et al., 2003, 2004]. The first simultaneous global distribution of stratospheric NO2 and NO3 from night-time GOMOS measurements is presented in [Hauchecorne et al., 2005]. The first global determination of the stratospheric OClO distribution as measured in 2003 by GOMOS is reported in [Fussen et al., 2006]. Investigations on the mesospheric sodium layer are discussed in [Fussen et al., 2004, 2005]. The comparison of aerosol extinction with external measurements is presented in [Vanhellemont et al., 2005], and the stratospheric aerosol extinction and PSC climatology in [Vanhellemont et al., 2005]. The analysis of the scintillation measurements and results of stratospheric turbulence studies are presented in [Gurvich et al., 2005], [Dalaudier et al., 2006] and [Sofieva et al., 2007]. Studies specific to mesospheric issues are reported in [Hauchecorne et al., 2007] and in [Sofieva et al., 2004]; the impact of solar proton events in the middle atmosphere is discussed in [Seppälä et al., 2004, 2006] and in [Verronen et al., 2005].
