Abstract. This overview paper highlights the successes of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) spanning more than 12 years of the OMI data record. Data from OMI has been used in a wide range of applications. Due to its unprecedented spatial resolution, in combination with daily global coverage, OMI plays a unique role in measuring trace gases important for the ozone layer, air quality and climate change, including new research findings using these satellite data. Due to the operational Very Fast Delivery (VFD) (direct readout) and Near Real Time (NRT) availability of the data, OMI also plays an important role in the development of operational services in the atmospheric chemistry domain.
