Influence of springtime weather systems on vertical ozone distributions over three North American sites. Cooper, O., R., Moody, J., L., Davenport, J., C., Oltmans, S., J., Johnson, B., J., Chen, X., Shepson, P., B., & Merrill, J., T. Journal of Geophysical Research, 103(D17):22001-22013, 1998.

The Atmosphere/Ocean Chemistry Experiment (AEROCE) '96 Springtime Intensive was designed to quantify major atmospheric chemical species transported from the United States east coast to the North Atlantic Ocean. During the study ozonesondes were launched almost every day between March 22 and May 3, 1996, from Charlottesville, Virginia; Purdue University, Indiana; and Bermuda. Whenever possible, the Charlottesville sondes were timed to fly behind passing cold fronts into midtropospheric to upper tropospheric bands of dry air. The dry air was hypothesized to contain ozone of stratospheric origin and was detected with color-enhanced satellite water vapor imagery. Soundings were placed in three categories: sondes launched ahead of an approaching cold front, sondes launched behind a passing cold front, and sondes launched into cutoff lows. This stratification explained much of the vertical ozone variation at each site.
