Photochemistry of Ozone Loss in the Arctic Region in Summer

Project Description
POLARIS was a series of high-altitude airborne investigations to
understand the behavior of polar stratospheric ozone as it changes
from very high concentrations in the spring down to very low
concentrations in autumn. The data will help with our understanding on
the distribution, chemistry, and physics of stratospheric ozone after
the vortex breakup, during the continuous daylight conditions of
summer. The experiment took place during April - September 1997.
