Abstract : In an experiment to study the correlation between temperature and ozone in the disturbed winter atmosphere, two rocket-borne ozonesonde were flown during a time in which temperature structure in the stratosphere and lower mesosphere changed at certain altitudes from the previous day. The resulting ozone and temperature distribution as compared to distribution on the control day at the end of winter season showed variations during the time the atmosphere was disturbed. These variations may be explained by considering the temperature dependence of reaction rates for an oxygen atmosphere. (Author)
