Short summary
This paper documents the use of total column ozone data from the TROPOMI satellite in the global forecasting system of the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). The data are of good quality over large parts of the globe but have some issues at high latitudes, at low solar elevations and over snow/ice. Assimilating the data in the CAMS system has a small positive impact, especially in the tropical troposphere.
