Abstract. During winter/spring 96/97 ozone levels over the Eureka NDSC observatory (80N,86W) were measured using a lidar, sondes, and a Brewer spectrophotometer. Column ClO measurements were also made using an FTIR system. Measurements show that lower stratospheric ozone mixing ratios decreased rapidly between mid-February and late-March though the ozone mixing ratio losses appear to have been less than for the 95/96 season. Elevated column amounts of ClO were found to be present over Eureka until late March.
