The NASA/Goddard Balloon Borne Lidar System
A balloon borne LIDAR system for the measurement of trace constitutents of the stratosphere has been built and operated by the Goddard Space Flight Center obtaining ozone measurements in the altitude region from 21 to 36 km and hydroxyl radical measurements in the 33 to 36 km region. These species were measured as part of NASA’s program to investigate the seriousness of man-made stratospheric ozone depletion via high altitude aircraft exhaust or the release of chlorofluorcarbons into the lower atmosphere.
