  Information - AS3.07 Ten Years of SHADOZ (Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes) Tropical Soundings

Event Information
SHADOZ (Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes) is one of several strategically designed ozonesonde networks that have transformed tropospheric and stratospheric ozone sampling in the past decade or so. By coordinating sonde launches spatially and temporally, SHADOZ has obtained mechanistic information about tropical ozone not accessible by other observations. The tenth anniversary of SHADOZ, a NASA-coordinated sounding effort with roughly 20 sponsor and operational nations participating, takes place in 2008. With central archiving at, SHADOZ has collected more than 3500 profiles at 15 stations spanning the tropics and subtropics on both sides of the equator. SHADOZ has greatly enhanced information on tropospheric variability, the equatorial wave-one, Brewer-Dobson circulation, QBO and processes in Tropical Tropopause Layer (TTL). Through cooperation with the World Meteorological Organization, SHADOZ has supported efforts to improve the precision of the sonde instrument and to standardize operational procedures. SHADOZ profiles are invaluable for evaluation of satellites and chemical-transport models. Contributions in all these areas are welcome.
