HALOE V19 Climatology

A climatology was developed from version 19 HALOE data, using monthly zonal means in 10 degree latitude bins.  The climatology is based on HALOE version 19 data, and includes vertical profiles of temperature, pressure, H2O, O3, CH4, HCl, HF, NO, NO2, and aerosol extinction at four wavelengths (2.45, 3.40, 3.46, and 5.26 microns). The results for each bin are reported as mean, standard deviation, and number of observations used. Also included are the bin average tropopause height and cloud (cirrus) top height.
