Vertical profiles of aerosol volume from high spectral resolution infrared transmission measurements: results

Eldering, Annmarie; Kahn, Brian H; Mills, Franklin; Irion, Frederick W; Steele, Helen M; Gunson, Michael R


The high-resolution infrared absorption spectra of the Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy (ATMOS) experiment are utilized to derive vertical profiles of sulfate aerosol volume density and extinction coefficient. Following the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in June 1991, the ATMOS spectra obtained on three Space Shuttle missions (1992, 1993, and 1994) provide a unique opportunity to study the global stratospheric sulfate aerosol layer shortly after a major volcanic eruption and periodically...[Show more]
