Summary
Abstract: Ozone measurements were taken at the Kaashidoo Climate Observatory
in the Maldives, Indian Ocean, as part of the SHADOZ-INDOEX
campaign. Ozone data were taken using balloon-borne ozonesondes and radiosondes
as part of the NASA Southern Hemisphere ADditional OZonesondes
(SHADOZ) project. The SHADOZ project is collecting ozone data for
validation, processing, and modeling of satellite-derived Total
Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) data.
