Ozone and Climate: With the HALO Research Aircraft to the North Pole
Description: Thanks to the Montreal Protocol, pollution of the Earth's atmosphere by ozone-depleting substances, such as chlorine or bromine from halons and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), decreased over the past years. Ozone is, however, not only influenced by these substances, but acts as a greenhouse gas itself: Its impact on climate near the ground is highest in the tropopause region, the transition zone between stratosphere and troposphere. The complex processes taking place there are subject of an extensive measurement campaign. [Source: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology]
