Middle Atmosphere Program/Winter in Northern Europe

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.

Data for this project was taken at Volgorrad, Europe and Heiss
Island in the Arctic Ocean.
