Join Hugo, Richard and Geraint on a tropical island adventure where we discover the importance of ozone near the equator. We discuss how ozone is transported though the atmosphere and ask the question: "How do the towering storm clouds in the tropics affect the composition of the atmosphere?" We travelled halfway across the globe to Papua New Guinea with our weather balloons to gather the data that we needed to find out.
This was recorded in February 2014 during the Co-ordinated Airborne Studies in the Tropics (CAST) campaign.
