Balloon observations – mass spectrometry

Starting in the mid-1970s, the mass spectrometry group of BIRA-IASB, led by Dr. Etienne Arijs, has carried out in situ measurements in the stratosphere with balloon-borne mass spectrometers for almost 25 years. This research has strongly contributed to the present knowledge of the stratospheric natural ion chemistry and composition and resulted in concentration profiles of important neutral trace constituents in this part of the Earth’s atmosphere.
