stratospheric balloon soundings

Updated 2003-03-04

In situ measurements in the stratosphere shall be carried out by means of different balloon soundings. The main goal is the investigation of aerosols in the tropopause-region and in the stratosphere during wintertime. Because generation of aerosols strongly depends on water vapour content, also water vapour will be measured.

Comments and additional information:

Backscatter-Sounds have been used with great success in the winters 1996, 97, 99 und 2000, but NOAA frostpoint hygrometer sounds have not been uset in Ny-Aalsund until now.
