[ Get Data ]

Abstract: A UV/visible wavelength diode array spectrometer was installed at Arrival Heights to allow off axis sunlight and moonlight measurements of ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), chlorine dioxide (OClO) and bromine oxide (BrO). The spectrometer works in the near ultraviolet and visible wavelengths and enables different viewing directions, including off axis measurements and moonlight measurements with ... View entire text
