Middle Atmosphere Program

Project Description
The middle atmosphere program is developing theoretical tools with
which to analyze and interpret data obtained by NRL experiments (such
as MAS, MAHRSI, WVMS, and POAM II). MAHRSI in particular provides the
first global measurements of the hydroxyl radical (OH) in the
stratosphere and mesosphere. This radical may be the key to
understanding the current discrepancy between model predictions and
measurements of stratospheric and mesospheric ozone.
