Short summary
This paper reports the results of a field campaign with ozonesondes held in Manus Island, Papua New Guinea in February 2014. Particular attention is paid to the background current correction for the ozonesondes. We show that the ozonesonde profiles compare very well with near-coincident aircraft measurements, and show no sign of the extremely low ozone concentrations (< 5 ppbv) reported by previous papers. The minimum repeatable ozone concentration just below the tropopause was 12 ppbv.
