Abstract
A ground-based spectrometer using the DOAS technique measuring at zenith was deployed at Izana Observatory during the 2nd CRISTA flight, in August 1997. CRISTA was flown on the ASTROPAS free-flying platform during the Space Shuttle mission STS-85, and among other species measured NO2 profiles. The twilight measurements of NO2 profiles. The twilight measurements of NO2 total column over the station obtained by the ground-based spectrometer has been used to estimate the profile of this species in the subtropics for summer and to compare with the results of CRISTA during the overpassings. The results of both data sets, and the origin of the discrepancies are discussed in the paper.
