Huang, 2012: Stratosphereto-troposphere transport revealed by groundbased lidar and ozonesonde
at a midlatitude site.

" group has been using balloons to loft instruments 18 miles into the atmosphere for 26 years to collect detailed profiles of ozone levels from the surface up.
To add more chemical and meteorological information, both sites incorporated synchronous (mostly within 10 min of each other) ozonesonde
launches and continuous aerosol profiling with ground-based ceilometers.
Tarasick and coworkers have used backward and forward trajectories to produce ozone maps using North American ozonesonde
data linking it to the grid points of the trajectory pathways .
is a small balloon-borne instrument that is attached to a standard radiosonde to measure profiles of ozone from the surface to 35 km with ~100-m vertical resolution.
Prior to our analyses, the data were evaluated for potential offset and drift by comparison with globally distributed ozonesonde
profiles and OMI convective cloud differential (CCD) measurements (Ziemke et al.
In 1992, LAPAN conducted a big-balloon launch, similar to that for cryogenic air sampling, and began successive ozonesonde
observations at the Watukosek Observatory in Java (Komala et al.
The first two LOAC instruments flown using MF balloons together with a cryogenic frost-point hygrometer (CFH), a Lan OPC, and an ozonesonde
did not reach ATAL altitudes.
