Increasing springtime ozone mixing ratios in the free troposphere over western North America
In the lowermost layer of the atmosphere—the troposphere—ozone is an important source of the hydroxyl radical, an oxidant that breaks down most pollutants and some greenhouse gases. HighExpand

Temperature climatology of the middle atmosphere from long‐term lidar measurements at middle and low latitudes
Long-term measurements from several lidar instruments (Rayleigh and sodium) located at 44.0°N, 40.6°N, 34.4°N, and 19.5°N have been used to develop a new climatology of the middle atmosphereExpand
