Short summary
Despite the efforts of the scientific community, the abundance and distribution of reactive bromine (BrOx) in the Antarctic troposphere is still poorly characterized. This work presents the first ground-based observations of tropospheric BrO from the Antarctic sites of Belgrano and Marambio. The 2015 measurements reported are also the first contemporary observations of BrO vertical profiles from two Antarctic sites and depict the geographical heterogeneity of BrOx in the Antarctic troposphere.
