Abstract:

An electrochemical concentration cell ECC ozonesonde has been developed for measuring the vertical distribution of atmospheric ozone up to about 35 km. The sondes are normally flown coupled to NOAA National Weather Service or Air Force military type balloon-borne meteorological radiosondes although, provision has been made in certain models of the instrument for additional coupling to Mastenbrook frost point hygrometers or Suomi-Kuhn net radiometers. This report describes the ozonesondes and their performance characteristics. Specifications for fabricating the instruments, as well as dies and stamping tools used in manufacturing the sondes, have also been developed. Author
