Paper Abstract

Recent progress in the development of submillimeter-wave instrumentation has provided access to a new spectral range (v = 625-655 GHz) to study upper atmospheric chemistry. A number of strong emission features, in particular of HCl, ClO and O3 have been measured in this frequency band with the SUMAS (Submillimeter-wave Atmospheric Sounder) experiment. The instrument has been operated successfully during the European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment (EASOE), in the period December 1991 to March 1992. We give a description of the SUMAS experiment and report on fast results obtained during EASOE.
