Observations on the ozone layer in Punta Arenas, Chile


The specific objective of the present proposal is the experimental observation and documentation of the ozone layer in Punta Arenas, Chile, in collaboration with the local university, the Magallanes University (Umag), using the technique of measuring ozone via ECC probe launched in a balloon. The Inpe group already has considerable experience in the execution of this technique. The work is being programmed for the end of September, beginning of October, and is related to the phenomenon of the ozone gap in Antarctica, which appears in the region at that time of the year. The secondary objective of the project is training in the technique of balloon launching for the Chilean group, our collaborators. (AU)
