Abstract

Ozone and water vapour in the tropopause region was an Upper Troposphere Lower Stratosphere (UTLS) Round 3 project led by Dr G. Vaughan, Dr J.A. Whiteway, Physics Department University of Wales, Aberystwyth and Dr R.L. Jones, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge.

This dataset contains Balloon-borne simultaneous measurements of ozone and water vapour in the tropopause region. The flights were targeted as far as possible at different air masses in the lower stratosphere over Aberystwyth, with a particular emphasis on north-westerly jet streams.
