Measurements of total ozone and aerosol parameters from October to mid-December, 1986, during the period when ozone levels are changing most rapidly
Entry ID: K085_1986_1987_NZ_1

Abstract: A spectrophotometer was installed at Arrival Heights near Scott Base and operated for a period of six weeks from the end of October 1986 to mid-December 1986. The instrument was fully automated and programmed to take measurements of direct sun radiance in each of eleven channels whenever the solar disk was unobscured. The channels were defined by thin film dielectric interference filters with ... View entire text
