Simulation study for ground-based Ku-band microwave observations of ozone and hydroxyl in the polar middle atmosphere

David A. Newnham et al.

Data sets

Model data for simulating atmospheric microwave spectra at 11.072 GHz and 13.441 GHz and performing retrievals of ozone (O3) and hydroxyl (OH) vertical profiles D. Newnham, P. Verronen, and A. Seppälä https://doi.org/10.5285/57858a9a-d814-412c-8e79-9a542cd055d4

Short summary
A simulation study has been carried out to investigate the potential for observing ozone and hydroxyl radical abundances in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere using ground-based passive microwave radiometry. In the polar middle atmosphere these chemical species respond strongly to geomagnetic activity associated with space weather. The results show that measuring diurnal variations in ozone and hydroxyl from high-latitude Northern Hemisphere and Antarctic locations would be possible.
