Abstract

wmm^v-: rwmm Improved Weather Forecasts Seen depletion of the earth's ozone layer and is the NOAA has developed a new weather analysis and dominant constituent causing the Antarctic ozone prediction system that will enhance nationwide, short- hole. range regional and aviation forecasting to be used UARS has helped show that the more chlorine beginning this year on an experimental basis. monoxide present, the less ozone will be observed. Called Mesoscale Analysis and Prediction System Chlorine monoxide, in the upper atmosphere, results (MAPS), this system will take advantage of a number from the breakdown of the man-made chlorofluorocar- of new sources of frequent weather observations. It bons by the sun's ultraviolet radiation. UARS has uses conventional meteorological data as well as observed high chlorine monoxide over Antarctica, information from several new sources just becoming while simultaneously measuring the ozone depletion available as a result of the National Weather Service's that accompanies it. These data confirm the relation- modernization program, including a network of 30 ship in the upper atmosphere between the two chemi- wind-profiling radars being installed in the central cals.
