Spectrometer measurements of ozone and nitrogen dioxide from Arrival Heights, South Pole Station, Halley Base and Campbell Island
Entry ID: K085_1985_1994_NZ_1

Abstract: The measurement of trace gas species in the stratosphere was monitored. Ozone (O3) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) interact to have an important effect on the radiation balance in the stratosphere. The spatial and temporal variation in these gases, whose quantities in the stratosphere are controlled by photochemistry and by horizontal and vertical transport processes, was measured. A spectrometer was ... View entire text
