Plain Language Summary: In this study, we have constructed a merged dataset using 20 available satellite Level 2 total column ozone (TCO) datasets over 40 years from 1978 to 2017. The individual datasets and the merged dataset are corrected against selected Dobson and Brewer spectrophotometer TCO measurements by two methods: simple linear regression (SLR) as a function of time, and multiple linear regression (MLR) as a function of time, solar zenith angle, and effective ozone temperature.
