  • We have reported the observation of millimetre-wave emission from abnormally high concentrations of chlorine monoxide, ClO, in the lower stratosphere over McMurdo Station, Antarctica during the period 1–22 September 1986 and demonstrated1 its diurnal behaviour. Here we report on the secular variation of daytime ClO in the lower stratosphere with a time resolution of 4 or 5 days, during the period 1 September to 16 October. We show that the ClO concentration declines during the latter half of… CONTINUE READING
