INDICATOR DEFINITION
Midwinter atmospheric temperatures at ~87km above Davis station, Antarctica, are determined from hydroxyl airglow emissions. The temperature reported is determined over the interval, day-of-year (DOY) 106 to DOY 258.

Quality Measurements of winter mean hydroxyl layer (~87 km) temperatures above Davis station, Antarctica are to be compared with measurements at other sites around the globe. Excessive cooling rates, significantly exceeding model predictions, of up to 0.7 K per annum have been reported (Golitsyn et al., 1996) from northern hemisphere measurements of hydroxyl airglow. Initial determinations must derive the ... View entire text
