Paper Abstract

Measurements of the 142 GHz rotational line of O3 are performed with a cooled total power radiometer. The spectral data obtained with this instrument are inverted with the Chahine algorithm in order to obtain an altitude profile of O3 in the range of 20 km to 70 km. Such profiles are compared with ozone measurements from other techniques available in the alpine region, such as Umkehr and balloon sonde data. For the correction of tropospheric effects mainly originating from water vapor, data from a dual channel radiometer at 21 GHz/31 GHz are used.
