Paper Abstract

The Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment is the mission selected by the Canadian Space Agency for its new science satellite, SCISAT-1. Dr. Peter Bernatch of the University of Waterloo is the ACE Principal Investigator, and ABB Bomem is the prime contractor for the development of the ACE main instrument, a Fourier-Transform Spectrometer. The principal goal of the ACE mission is to measure and understand the chemical and dynamical processes that control the distribution of ozone in the upper troposphere and stratosphere. A comprehensive set of simultaneous measurements of trace gases, thin clouds, aerosols and temperature will be made by solar occultation from a satellite in a low Earth orbit.
