    A review of the satellite-borne instrumentation used for the total ozone and ozone vertical profile watch is presented. The principle of the observational method for the monitoring of the atmospheric ozone content is used to group the basic satellite systems. Along these lines the direct-absorption, scattering, and emission-measuring instruments are presented, besides providing a short discussion on the spatio-temporal variability of the ozone content mainly derived from a few outstanding field campaigns.
