Abstract
To investigate the ozone changes and their causes in the Arctic our FTIR spectrometers were operated in winter 1991/92 during the European Arctic stratospheric ozone experiment (EASOE): one at Esrange, Sweden, and the other one at Sondre Stromfjord, Greenland. The evaluation of the recorded spectra yields zenith column amounts (ZCA) of several trace gases like H2O, HDO, CH4, N2O, CFC-11, -12, -22, O3, HNO3, ClONO2, HCl and HF. This paper focuses on HCl, HF and ClONO2. The ratio HCl to HF is rather low inside the vortex indicating a perturbed chemistry. ClONO2 is increasing towards the end of the winter and is very high in the late polar vortex.
