Atmospheric Composition

The MkIV interferometer is a unique instrument. Since being built at JPL in 1984/5, it has participated in numerous ground-based, aircraft and balloon field campaigns. This work has resulted in over 120 peer reviewed publications, 27 of these in the last 3½ years. These papers have shed new light on a diverse set of scientific issues (see References). This proposal seeks a continuation of funding to support ground-based measurements by the MkIV instrument and balloon-borne measurements by the new Light-Weight Balloon Interferometer (LWBI), a miniature version of the MkIV developed specifically for ballooning. The proposed work will acquire new atmospheric composition measurements and re-analyze previously acquired data (balloon and ground-based) using improved spectral fitting techniques and spectroscopic linelists.
