Abstract

Two stratospheric ozone profiles have been obtained using rocket-based solar absorption UV radiometry over Anheung, Korea on June 4 and September 1, 1993. The ozone sensor consists of four radiometers, measuring the attenuation of solar ultraviolet radiation as a function of altitude during ascent. The retrieved ozone density profiles cover altitudes of 15 to 35 km from the first sounding Korean Sounding Rocket-1 (KSR-1) and 15 to 45 km from the second sounding (KSR-2). Retrieved profiles have random errors (1σ) of approximately 7% for altitudes between 20 and 30 km for KSR-1 and between 20 and 40 km for KSR-2 and ̃15-20% for other regions. Both profiles compare reasonably well with near-coincident ground-based lidar and Umkehr measurements as well as with satellite measurements of the Halogen Occultation Experiment on board UARS. The KSR-1 and KSR-2 soundings provided the first near in situ measurements of ozone concentrations over the Korean Peninsula. The significance of these measurements at this geographical location will be discussed.
