The ground-based measurement of ozone in the 9.6 micron bandStratospheric ozone has been measured using infrared emission spectroscopy of the 9.6 micron band. Thermal emission spectra of the zenith sky were measured from the ground. The spectra show the presence of the 1020 cm(exp -1) spectral feature of ozone on clear days. The spectra were measured with a BOMEM model 100 emission interferometer with a resolution of 4 cm(exp -1). The feature corresponds to a mixing ratio of 5 ppmv if the ozone is assumed to be uniformly distributed in the stratosphere from 25 to 35 km. The development of an inversion algorithm to derive the altitude distribution of the ozone in 3 layers is described. These measurements have been conducted from Peterborough, Ontario since June 1991; further investigations are planned to study the comparisons with Dobson and LIDAR ozone measurements.
