Additional information

The HALOX instrument is designed for the measurement of chlorine monoxide (ClO) and bromine monoxide (BrO) in the lower to middle stratosphere (10-30km altitude range). In the stratosphere ClO and BrO do mainly originate from the decomposition of the manmade chloro fluoro carbons (CFCs), halons, and methyl bromide and are the main contributors to anthropogenic stratospheric ozone depletion. Their measurement quantifies the ozone depletion potential within a given air mass.
