NASA's UARS Providing Global Map of Ozone sphere, such as conventional weather ballons as high Preliminary data from NASA's Upper Atmosphere as 18 miles (30 km) and high-altitude balloons at 25 Research Satellite (UARS) are providing scientists miles (40 Km) above the earth. A new worldwide with a three-dimensional global map of ozone in the network of laser sounding systems that is now replac- upper atmosphere and a global view of chlorine mon- ing rockets will provide comparison temperatures and oxide, a key chemical in ozone depletion. ozone data up to 40 miles (64 km) above the earth. These first data were obtained from UARS' Micro- UARS is the first flight component of Mission to wave Limb Sounder, one of ten instruments aboard Planet Earth, the National Aeronautics and Space the new research satellite deployed by space shuttle Administration's 20-year program to gather informa- Discovery on 15 September.
