Ozone Measuring


There are many ways to measure ozone in the atmosphere, and each technique has its strengths and its limitations. Discuss the various techniques you have read about in this chapter. Make a concept map showing differences in how the instruments measure ozone, taking into account such things as vantage point, use of optical or chemical sensing, types of sensors (UV, chemical reaction, etc.), how long it can measure the data (e.g. seconds versus days), extent of coverage; reliability, cost, efficiency, complexity of the equipment, and number of people needed to complete the observation mission. You may opt to use some of the quality web sites listed in the appendix of this book dedicated to the technology of these research efforts.
