Data from flights
April 12, 1999 - Atlas IIas Plume encounter
On March 25 and 26, 1999 we successfully flew a new instrument to
measure ClO and CO2 in the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere.
measurements are designed to assess the impact of rocket exhaust on
stratospheric ozone. Below are some photos that were taken at Ellington
Field, Houston during the test flights.
