Tropospheric Ozone Depletion and Bromine Explosions
Entry ID: K084_2006_2007_NZ

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Tropospheric ozone depletion events during the Antarctic spring of 06/07 and 07/08 were observed. DOAS measurements of near surface BrO and O3 concentrations were made at three locations: Cape Bird (06-07 and 07-08 seasons), the sea ice below Arrival Heights (06-07 and 07-08 seasons) and from sea ice close to Inaccessible Island (07-08 season). BrO slant columns were measured, near surface O3 ... View entire text
