Short summary
We present observational data on δ18O(O3) from the UT/LMS, the region to date not covered by the ozone isotope composition measurements. It is to bridge the gap between the tropospheric (mostly surface) and stratospheric measurement data. We demonstrate an approach suitable for isotope mass-balance calculations (“Keeling plot”) in intricate cases, i.e. admixing of the (unknown) source in question to the reservoirs with (unknown) variable starting compositions.
