Ozone Data from the 1999 NOAA Aerosols Cruise, Southern Hemisphere Additional OZonesondes (SHADOZ) Project, NASAEntry ID: SHADOZ_AEROSOL99
Abstract: Ozone measurements were taken on two legs of the NOAA R/V Ronald H. Brown as
part of the 1999 Aerosols Cruise. 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.
