Despite the detection of bromine monoxide (BrO) in the atmosphere some 20 years ago, bromine nitrate (BrONO2) was first observed in 2008 when scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology discovered the gas's weak signal with data from MIPAS (the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding).
By comparing the novel MIPAS BrONO2 dataset with model calculations and BrO measurements by SCIAMACHY on Envisat, our general understanding of stratospheric bromine chemistry has been clearly confirmed," said Michael Hopfner of Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
The purpose of this scientific study is to investigate existing scientific algorithms from the GOMOS MIPAS SCIAMACHY and TPM instruments on their feasibility to generate climatologies of mesospheric data.
