Summary
Abstract: Ozone (O3) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are two trace gases in the stratosphere that interact to have an important effect on the radiation balance. The spatial and temporal variation in these gases (total column over time), whose quantities in the stratosphere are controlled by photochemistry and by horizontal and vertical transport processes are monitored annually with visible wavelength ...

Quality The spectrophotometer measurements are on the NDACC ftp site. The nitrogen dioxide measurements have been added to the database at Lauder.

Data is held internally by NIWA and in the NDACC database. "Raw" data are times and recorded spectra of scattered light. "Derived" data are column amount of NO2 and ozone.

Please contact the investigators for more information or Paul Johnston/Karin Kreher for information in regards to the instruments.
