Analysis of isotopic ratios of water vapour samples from the stratosphere to determine polar stratospheric cloud formation and disintigration
Entry ID: K087_2001_2006_NZ_1

Abstract: The transport of water vapor near the tropopause and lower stratosphere, e.g. The inflow of tropospheric water vapor into the stratosphere and the vertical redistribution of stratospheric water vapor due to sedimentation of Polar Stratospheric Cloud (PSC) particles was investigated. In situ collection of up to six water vapor samples from flights operating between Christchurch and McMurdo were ... View entire text
