Abstract

Stratospheric ozone and aerosol profile data to correct the Umkehr measurements are derived from ozonesonde observations and observations provided by five lidar stations in the northern hemisphere middle latitudes. Optical properties of the stratospheric aerosol existing during and after the major injection by El Chichon are derived from surface and aircraft photometric observations and in situ aircraft observations of aerosol size distribution. The corrected Umkehr data display some noteworthy ozone reductions in the upper stratosphere. For example, in layers 8 and 9, in which decreases in ozone concentration during 1979-1986 were 9% and 15% respectively, using corrected data. -from Authors
