Figs. 1+2: FTIR Container at Esrange (December 1994).
Since winter 1989/90 a ground-based FTIR spectrometer was operated each winter at Kiruna.
While at the beginning the instrument was operated on a campaign basis, a Bruker 120HR is operated continuously at IRF Kiruna since March 1996.
This is a collaboration with IRF Kiruna and the University of Nagoya.
Campaigns participated in are:
