Please join us Tuesday, July 4 in Physics 175 for our next presentation in our PEGASUS Summer Seminar Ser
Our next speaker is Kimberlee Dube, who studies ozone and aerosol profiles using OSIRIS.
There will be cookies and refreshments served beforehand at 3:00 pm in the lounge for those attending the seminar.
Title: The effect of solar rotation on OSIRIS ozone and aerosol observations
The amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth’s atmosphere varies with both the 11 year solar cycle and the 27 day solar rotation period. The Optical Spectrograph and InfraRed Imager System (OSIRIS) has been in orbit on the Odin satellite since late 2001. The effect of solar UV variability on ozone and aerosol profiles retrieved from OSIRIS was investigated for a 14 year period. Current results will be presented and compared with those from other limb instruments.
