Abstract

Particle collections from the stratosphere via either the JSC Curatorial Program or the U2 Program (NASA Ames) occur between 16km and 19km altitude and are usually part of ongoing experiments to measure parameters related to the aerosol layer. Fine-grained aerosols (<0.1µm) occur in the stratosphere up to 35km altitude and are concentrated between 15km and 25km altitude[1]. All interplanetary dust particles (IDP's) from these stratospheric collections must pass through this aerosol layer before reaching the collection altitude. The major compounds in this aerosol layer are sulfur rich particulates (<0.1µm) and gases and include H2S04, OCS, S02 and CS2 [2].In order to assess possible surface reactions of interplanetary dust particles (IDP's) with ambient aerosols in the stratosphere, we have initiated a Surface Auger Microprobe (SAM) and electron microscope study of selected particles from the JSC Cosmic Dust Collection.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
