Tropospheric and stratospheric measurements of key atmospheric compounds from the ground and space

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Ground-based remote sensing global networks have been actively monitoring, developing instrumentation, and pushing the boundaries of analysis techniques for the last 15 years or more. One such network, the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC), has deployed spectroscopic UV/Visible, near and mid-IR, microwave and mm-wave instrumentation that can measure a large range of chemical and aerosol species, tackling many question of current interest to the scientific community. The University of Wollongong, a complimentary site within the NDACC network, operates a high resolution Infrared Fourier Transform Spectrometer and will install a NDSC standard UV/Visible spectrometer in 2007. In combination with established mid-IR retrieval techniques, recent advances in UV/Visible retrieval techniques promises to provide limited vertical information on species like HCHO, SO2, NO2, and aerosols. Wollongong is also uniquely placed on the Australian coastal fringe where atmospheric column measurements sample marine, sub-tropical forest, and occasional intense forest fire emissions. This dataset will be compared with collocated ENVISAT overpasses looking at a number of atmospheric constituents including both tropospheric and stratospheric species. These measurements will be supported by examining the chemistry and transport of a tracer gas (CO) with model calculations.
