Ozone, temperature and pressure measurements from ozonesonde instruments launched on balloons during the polar winter into the atmosphere to approximately 30 km height from nine stations in Antarctica
Entry ID: K085_2002_2003_NZ_2

Abstract: As part of the European QUOBI project (Quantitative Understanding of Ozone losses by Bipolar Investigations), 9 stations around Antarctica were involved in a coordinated 'Match' campaign involving launching an ozonesonde (a small ozone-measureing instrument borne on a balloon) from one station, then launching another from the same or another station when trajectory modelling showed the sampled air ...
