The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) is an instrument flown on the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) series of satellites. OMPS consists of spectrometers that are primarily used to measure ozone concentration and vertical distribution throughout the atmosphere. Other products - such as sulfur dioxide concentration - can also be produced to provide information on air quality and hazards. This presentation will outline the updates to the OMPS algorithms since the launch of the NOAA-20 satellite in November 2017 and highlight additional changes expected with the launch of JPSS-2 in 2022. Examples will be provided to demonstrate the effects these changes have on the downstream data products and their benefits to the user community including ozone hole monitoring and continuity of a stable climate data record.
