ATMOSPHERIC OZONE DYNAMICS:STUDY OF VARIATION OF ATMOSPHERIC OZONE OVER GREECE

By Γεώργιος Χρονόπουλος

Abstract

THE MAIN PERPOSE OF THIS THESIS IS TO EXAMINE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ATMOSPHERIC OZONE VARIATIONS(COLUMN AND VERTICAL OZONE DISTRIBUTION)AS DEDUCED FROM IN-SITU AND REMOTE SENSING OBSERVING TECHNIQUES.THIS ANALYSIS CONSIDERED NOT ONLY THE GREEK AREA BUT GENERALLY THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE MID-LATITUDE.OF PRIMARY INTEREST WAS THE EXAMINATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF POLAR AND MID-LATITUDES STRATOSPHERIC PROCESSES AT THE MEASURES OZONE DECLINE.THIS THESIS IS SCHEDULED AS FOLLOWS:AT CH.1 THE PRINCIPLES OF OZONE DYNAMICS AND PHOTOCHEMISTRY ARE PRESENTED.AT CH.2 THE BASIC OBSERVATIONAL TECHNIQUES ARE DESCRIBED.THE TOTAL OZONE DEPLETI0N OVER GREECE IS PRESENTED AT CH.3 BASED ON SATELLITE AND GROUND BASED OBSERVATIONS.THE MAIN TOTAL OZONE VARATIONS ARE ALSO DISCUSSED .AT THE CH.4 THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF VERTICAL OZONE DISTRIBUTION OVER GREECE AS WELL AS OVER THE NORTHERN MID-LATITUDES ARE PRESENTED.THE ROLE OF ATMOSHERIC PROCESSES ON THE OBSERVED VARATIONS OF OZONE DISTRIBUTION IS EXAMINED.FINALLY ATCH.5 SATELLITE BORNED OBSERVATIONS OF VERTICAL OZONE DISTRIBUTION OVER GREECE AS WELL AS OVER MID AND HIGH LATITUDES ARE EXAMINED.THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN VERTICAL OZONE DISTRIBUTION AND STRATOSPHERIC PROCESSES IS PRESENTED.
