Abstract

The CD-ROM contains data from the combined experiment: Airborne Southern Hemisphere Ozone Experiment; and Measurements for Assessing the Effects of Stratospheric Aircraft (ASHOE/MAESA). This experiment was conducted in four phases between March and November 1994 at NASA Ames Research Center, California; Barbers Point, Hawaii; and Christchurch, New Zealand. Most of the data are essentially in their final form, but additional calibrations are being done for some instruments. A second edition incorporating any changes to the datasets is anticipated in mid 1996. The data consist of in situ and remotely sensed measurements collected onboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft (including O3, H2O, N2O, CO2, CH4, CO, H2, SF6 and a wide range of CFCs); radiosonde, ozonesonde, and backscatter sonde balloon measurements; ground-based spectrometer and lidar measurements; and SAGE II satellite measurements. Theory teams provided calculations of: meteorological parameters in the form of partial hemispheric analyses, cross-sections along the ER-2 flight track, interpolations to the ER-2 flight path, and back- trajectories of selected parcels along the ER-2 flight path; photodissociation rates of selected chemical species along the ER-2 flight path; and cloud properties along the ER-2 flight track.
