NP-119 Science in Orbit: The Shuttle & Spacelab Experience, 1981-1986

This diagram summarizes the vertical range of detection for some of the chemicals observed by Atmospheric Trace Molecules Spectroscopy (ATMOS).

This diagram summarizes the vertical range of detection for some of the chemicals observed by Atmospheric Trace Molecules Spectroscopy (ATMOS). The colors denote different groups of atmospheric constituents. The first group is minor gases commonly found in the atmosphere; the rest are trace gases grouped by chemical families. Notable among the results are the detection of trace species that had not been observed previously and the first measurement by remote sensing techniques of the principal natural halocarbon, methylene chloride (CH3CI)
