The overview of recent new activities related to LOTUS at Finnish Meteorological Institute will be presented. First, the long-term merged dataset with resolved longitudinal structure, which is developed in the framework of ESA Ozone_cci project, will be presented. The dataset includes the data from GOMOS, MIPAS, SCIAMACHY and OSIRIS; it covers the years from 2002 to present. The dataset can be useful in comparisons of climate data records from satellite and ground-based instruments. Future developments of this dataset will be discussed. The second theme of the presentation is new ESA -funded project SUNLIT- Synergy of Using Nadir and Limb Instruments for Tropospheric ozone monitoring. As a part of this project, a multi-instrument stratospheric ozone column dataset, compatible with nadir total ozone column measurements, will be created. Such dataset can be used in climate-related studies.
