Atmospheric air samples from aboard supply aircrafts operating between Christchurch, New Zealand and McMurdo Sound investigating the atmospheric chemistry and reactions between carbon monoxide, methane and ozone
Entry ID: K087_1996_1998_NZ_1

Abstract: Large whole air samples collected from a compressor system aboard the supply aircrafts operating between Christchurch and McMurdo incorporated measurements of ozone. In association with concentration and isotopic measurements of methane and carbon monoxide, the importance of chlorine chemistry with these trace gases was investigated. An apparent relationship was identified between the reactive ... View entire text
