Abstract

An observation campaign including intensive launches of ozonesondes was conducted at Fairbanks (64.8 N, 147.9 W), Alaska, during 23-30 August 2003. The objectives are validation of data from Improved Limb Atmospheric Spectrometer-II (ILAS-II) on board the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS- II) with Alaska Project ground-based instruments and examination of small-scale ozone variation in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. Observed small-scale structures in ozone are compared with high-resolution fields reconstructed from 3-dimensional chemical transport model using the reverse domain filling technique.
