UTLS-OZONE was a NERC directed mode programme funding projects to study the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. The particular emphasis was on the processes determining the distribution of ozone and any subsequent climate impacts. Two UTLS Ozone projects were based on airborne campaigns using the FAAM aircraft, namely ITOP-UK and CIRRUS.
This dataset contains ozonesonde and LIDAR ozone profiles measured by the Aberystwyth group in support of the UTLS-OZONE projects:
* Dynamics and Chemistry of Frontal Zones (DCFZ) (PI: Keith Browning, Department of Meteorology, University of Reading)
* Atmospheric Chemistry and Transport of Ozone (ACTO) (PI: Stuart Penkett, School of the Environment, University of East Anglia)
* the Egrett experiment (PI: Jim Whiteway, University of Wales at Aberystwyth)
* "Night-Time Chemistry in the UTLS Region" (PI: Hugh Coe, University of Manchester) and of the EU project TRACAS.
