ANNUAL REPORT OF LAWRENCE LIVERMORE LABORATORY TO THE FAA ON THE HIGH ALTITUDE POLLUTION PROGRAM-1979

This annual report documents the progress made on research in support of the High Altitude Pollution Program (HAPP) during FY-1979. The primary research emphases at LLNL are numerical modeling of the atmospheric response to stratospheric perturbations and processing and analyzing satellite data to determine stratospheric ozone concentrations. The modeling effort at LLNL covers four major research areas: photochemical kinetics, coupled kinetics and transport, radiative transfer, and meteorological analysis. Tasks completed during the past year included: comparison of model simulations of stratospheric composition with observational data, simulations of past perturbations to the stratosphere, and assessments of potential changes resulting from aircraft engine emissions and other perturbations. The satellite data processing task has three major areas of effort: (1) radiative transfer and ozone retrieval methodology, (2) data processing, archiving, and distribution, and (3) data analysis, interpretation, and quality assurance. Progress in each of these areas is reviewed toward the goal of implementing the retrieval methodology during FY-1980. (Author)
