Abstract : Suitable methodology based on neutron activation analysis is developed for accurate measurement of chlorine and bromine from balloon flight sampling. The method is applied to measurement of a number of filter and filter extracts. It is shown that analyses carried out on total filter is inaccurate because of the relatively major filer bank contributions. However, analyses carried out on water extracts of filters appear to yield satisfactory measurements. (Author)
