Abstract

A series of coordinated atmospheric ozone profile measurements was made during October and November 1988. The instruments making observations and their locations were as follows. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and Goddard Space Flight Center differential absorption lidar systems were located at the JPL-Table Mountain Facility 34.4°N, 117.7°W. The electrochemical concentration cell balloon sondes and the rocket ozonesondes were both launched from Point Mugu Naval Air Station at 34.2°N, 119.2°W. Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE II) satellite measurements were at various latitudes and longitudes but only measurements made within 1000 km of both of the above sites were considered for this intercomparison study. It was found that at least for the time of year of the study, SAGE II measurements agreed only when they were made much closer than 1000 km (<500 km) from the other sites, and this is explained in terms of the large latitudinal gradient observed in the ozone concentration profile. Agreement to 5% was seen between the instruments, over the altitude range from 20 to 50 km, when the measurements were made close together in both time and space.
