Paper Abstract

The stratospheric aerosol sulfate layer (Junge layer) may influence the earth's radiation budget, climate, and stratospheric ozone levels. In this paper, we present research activities at the National Center for Atmospheric Research employing high resolution tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy which address two separate aspects of the Junge layer: laboratory heterogeneous measurements of reaction probabilities between stratospheric gases of importance and aqueous H2SO4 aerosols, and studies of OCS sources, sinks, and potential long-term secular trends.
