Abstract

Simultaneous measurements of the stratospheric aerosol by light scattering and small ion interaction are presented. The cross section of the stratosphere aerosol is estimated to vary from 107 to 10−3 cm2/cm3. The stratification of the aerosol shows layers of high concentration with vertical dimensions of the order of 30 meters separated by intrusions of clean air with vertical dimensions of the order of 300 meters.
