Summary
Abstract: POLARIS was a series of high-altitude airborne investigations to understand the behavior of polar stratospheric ozone as it changes from very high concentrations in the spring down to very low concentrations in autumn. The data will help with our understanding on the distribution, chemistry, and physics of stratospheric ozone after the vortex breakup, during the continuous daylight conditions of summer. The experiment took place during April - September 1997 from Fairbanks, Alaska. A complete summary of the results of the experiment are available from: http://espoarchive.nasa.gov/archive/arcs/polaris/docs/eoms/
