Abstract
The use of FTIR spectroscopy has become well established as a valuable technique for the study both of constituents of the stratosphere itself, and of laboratory chemical transformations of stratospheric importance. Thus, FTIR-spectroscopy can play a key role in understanding the phenomenon of stratospheric ozone decline in detail. Trace constituents in the stratosphere can be examined either by ground-based or air-borne high resolution IR instruments. In the laboratory long path cells capable of operation at low temperatures and pressures allow us to study temperature and pressure dependence of spectra and rates of stratospheric homogeneous gas phase reactions. Heterogeneous chemical reactions on the surfaces of Polar Stratospheric Clouds are considered important for their potential role in ozone depletion processes.
