Science Update: Cost effective trace gas measurements for long term monitoring of stratospheric circulation

F. Moore and co-authors propose a cost effective stratospheric trace gas measurement program using balloon-based sondes and AirCore sampler techniques as a means to monitor the strength of the Brewer Dobson circulation. This BAMS paper outlines a program that would consist of regular trace gas profile measurements taken at several latitudes, making use of relatively low cost AirCore and sonde techniques.
