Abstract:

An experiment to monitor the ozone concentration in the upper stratosphere and lower mesosphere was performed at Panama Canal Zone during the first two weeks in November 1970. The rocketborne ozonesonde, a self-pumping device which incorporated a temperature-sensing bead thermistor on a time-sharing basis with the ozone sensor, was used for this study. Two electrochemical ozonesondes Mast type with the AMI-12 Radiosondes were flown on balloons, one on 9 November and the other on 12 November 1970. Resulting temperature and ozone data are presented.
