In situ measurements of middle atmosphere composition
MetadataShow full item record
Experimental data based on aircraft, balloon and rocket measurements of trace species in the middle atmosphere are briefly reviewed. Some ground based observations are also included where no other information is available. The scarcity of values relevant to the vertical distributions is emphasized as well as the lack of knowledge of time and geographic variabilities necessary to understand the physical and chemical properties of the middle atmosphere as well as to monitor its stability over long periods of time.
