Abstract

POLSTRACC (Polar Stratosphere in a Changing Climate) employed the German High Altitude and Long Range research aircraft (HALO). The payload comprised an innovative combination of remote sensing and in-situ instruments. The in-situ instruments provided high-resolution observations of cirrus and polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs), a large number of reactive and long-lived trace gases, as well as temperature at the aircraft level. Information above and underneath the aircraft level was achieved by remote sensing instruments as well as dropsondes. The mission took place from 8 December 2015 to 18 March 2016 covering the extremely cold late December to early February period and the time around the major warming in the beginning of March. In 18 scientific deployments, 156 flight hours were conducted, covering latitudes from 25°N to 87°N, maximum altitudes of almost 15 km, and reaching potential temperature levels of up to 410 K.
