Abstract. NO2 is an important trace gas in both the stratosphere and troposphere. Since January 2007, the nadir-looking GOME-2 satellite instrument has been providing NO2 data on a global scale which is of great interest for climate research and atmospheric chemistry studies. In this contribution, we report on an improved algorithm for the retrieval of total and tropospheric NO2 columns from the GOME-2 instrument.
