We survey the IPCC AR4 models' responses to SRES A1B forcing in order to evaluate a prediction of climate change common to all models and testable using GPS radio occultation data over the coming decades. Of the IPCC AR4 models that submitted runs of the SRES A1B forcing scenario, we select twelve because of the timeliness of their submission. Trends in the global average surface air temperature...

The first simultaneous, in situ atmospheric measurements of ClO, ClOOCl, ClONO2, and HCl, which together nearly compose total inorganic chlorine, Cl-y, were obtained using the NASA ER-2 aircraft, deployed from Kiruna, Sweden, during the SOLVE/THESEO mission. These chlorine measurements, along with Cly inferred from in situ measurements of organic chlorine source gases, offer an unprecedented...

This paper describes an instrument designed to measure the sum of gas phase and solid phase water, or total water, in cirrus clouds, and to be mounted in a pallet in the underbelly of the NASA WB-57 research aircraft. The ice water content of cirrus is determined by subtracting water vapor measured simultaneously by the Harvard water vapor instrument on the aircraft. The total water instrument...

Stimpfle, R. M., D. M. Wilmouth, R. J. Salawitch, and J. G. Anderson, The first measurements of ClOOCl in the stratosphere: The coupling of ClOOCl and ClO in the arctic polar vortex, J. Geophys. Res. 109, D03301, doi:10.1029/2003JD003811, February 4, 2004.

The first measurements of ClOOCl in the stratosphere have been acquired from a NASA ER-2 aircraft, deployed from Kiruna, Sweden (68°N, 21°E), during the joint SOLVE/THESEO-2000 mission of the winter of 1999/2000. ClOOCl is detected by thermal dissociation into two ClO fragments that are measured by the well-known technique of chemical conversion, vacuum ultraviolet resonance fluorescence. Ambient...

Anderson, J. G., H. J. Grassl, R. E. Shetter, and J. J. Margitan, Stratospheric free chlorine measured by balloon-borne in situ resonance fluorescence, J. Geophys. Res. 85, 2869–87, 1980. [doi:10.1029/JC085iC05p02869]

Eight balloon-borne in situ measurements of ClO in the stratosphere are presented. Six of the observations, which were carried out close to local noon, are compared with recent model calculations at the appropriate latitude (32°N), altitude (25–45 km), and solar zenith angle interval (10° < χ < 55°). The ClO mixing ratio by volume observed on four flights between the autumnal equinox and...
