Abstract

This paper reports on the first experimental evidence of the impact of a solar proton event on the stratospheric NO2 content derived from ground-based spectrometric measurements at middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. In October 2003, a solar proton event caused an increase in the NO2 content in the upper stratosphere by 0.6 × 1015 cm–2, which accounted for about one-third of the increase in the column NO2 content. Solar proton events may be an essential factor for variability of the column NO2 content in the atmosphere of the high and middle latitudes.
