UARS satellite

MLS instrument: Microwave Limb Sounder

Overview

      The MLS instrument was launched on the UARS satellite from the Discovery space shuttle on 15th September 1991. MLS measures several atmospheric chemical species (OH, HO2, H2O, O3, HCl, ClO, HOCl, BrO, HNO3, N2O, CO, HCN, CH3CN, volcanic SO2), cloud ice, temperature and geopotential height to improve our understanding of stratospheric ozone chemistry.
