Abstract

The Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition II (AASE II) which was based in Bangor, Maine between October 1991 and March 1992, with ER-2 flights from Ames Research Center, Fairbanks (Alaska), and Bangor; and DC-8 flights from Ames, Bangor, Anchorage (Alaska), Stavanger (Norway), and Tahiti, was a follow-up to an earlier AASE campaign in 1989. This dataset consists of MODEL data containing 12 Z hemispheric analyses of potential vorticity, temperature, horizontal winds, and radiative heating rates; and one file named MA911006.H00 which contains gas-phase chemistry model reconstructions of several radicals as a function of latitude, altitude, and local time.
