Abstract: Abstract Compatibility of the stratospheric ozone profile data from the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite Limb Profiler (OMPS‐LP) and the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) is assessed in the context of a continuity requirement for future reanalyses. A methodology for the assimilation of OMPS‐LP data into the Goddard Earth Observing System data assimilation system with a stratospheric chemistry module is developed. It is demonstrated that a simple homogenization technique significantly reduces the bias between OMPS‐…
