Ozone Data from Christmas Island/SOWER 1999, Southern Hemisphere Additional OZonesondes (SHADOZ) Project, NASA

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Ozone measurements were taken at Christmas Islands as part of the
PEM-TROPICS B/SOWER project. Ozone data were taken using
balloon-borne ozonesondes and radiosondes
as part of the NASA Southern Hemisphere ADditional OZonesondes
(SHADOZ) project. The SHADOZ project is collecting ozone data for
validation, processing, and modeling of satellite-derived Total
Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) data.
