Title

Rocket Impact on Stratospheric Ozone: Submicron Aerosol Measurement

Abstract

This paper desribes the results of in-situ aerosol measurements in the plumes of two Titan IV solid rocket motors performed at altitudes between 50-67,000 ft minutes to hours after launch. The total aerosol concentration are found to be one to two orders of magnitude greater than the background aerosol concentration. The size distributions, for both plume and background samples, in the diameter size range 10-200nm, are found to monatonically increase with decreasing aerosol diameter. Ozone loss in the vacinity of the plume can be correlated with increases in local aerosol concentration due to the plume.
