Abstract

The Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition (AASE) which was based in Stavanger, Norway during January and February, 1989, was designed to study the production and loss mechanisms of ozone in the north polar stratospheric environment, and the effect on ozone distribution of the Arctic polar vortex and of the cold temperatures associated with the formation of Polar Stratospheric Clouds (PSC).

This dataset contains measurements of chemical and dynamical parameters collected onboard the DC-8 aircraft (for example, ClO, BrO, HCl, O3, NOx, N2, HNO3 and CH4, whole air samples and aerosol measurements).
