Southern Hemisphere ADditional OZonesondes

Project Description
The Southern Hemisphere ADditional OZonesondes (SHADOZ) project supports the
collection of tropospheric ozone data through balloon-borne ozonesonde
measurements for validating and Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) data
from satellites. The project launches ozondesoondes approximately every two
weeks from 10 tropical and subtropical southern hemisphere sites. Currently,
twelve active sites are participating in SHADOZ. The sites are at Ascension
Island; American Samoa; Fiji; Irene, South Africa; Java, Indonesia; Malindi and
Nairobi, Kenya; Natal, Brazil; Paramaribo, Surinam; La Réunion, France; San
Cristóbal, Galapagos; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
