Paper Abstract

In frame of building up the high-altitute environmental research station Zugspitze/Schneefernerhaus a measurement system for the investigation of trace gases on the basis of FTIR spectrometry is developed. A spectrometer with a spectral reolution up to 0.0014 cm-1 is the main part and first solar absorption spectra will be shown. Complementary a transportable spectrometer at spectral resolutions 0.06 cm-1 was used in the last years. These spectra are interpreted by the SFIT software package to retrieve atmospheric column densities of HCl, HF, N2O, O3, H2O, HNO3, and other gases. The results will be discussed in connection with spatial and temporal atmospheric variations.
