[en] The major sources of fluorine in the stratosphere are CFC-11 and CFC-12. During the decomposition process, fluorine is first present in the form of carbonyl compounds (e.g. carbonyl fluoride (COF2)). Given its long life time, COF2 is the second most abundant stratospheric fluorine reservoir. Earliest, COF2 vertical distributions were derived from occultation measurements performed by the ATMOS instrument during the SPACELAB-3 Space Shuttle mission in 1985. The Canadian FTIR spectrometer ACE-FTS, onboard the SCISAT-1 satellite, is the first instrument since the last ATMOS flight in 1994, to record COF2 vertical profiles from space. Four years of ACE-FTS occultation measurements are presently available.

Several COF2 IR absorption lines located either in the so-called InSb (1-5 µm) and MCT (2-16 µm) spectral ranges can be used to determine its total column from ground-based high-resolution FTIR observations. In addition, we have proposed, during the EGU General Assembly 2007, an original retrieval procedure that allows us to derive information on the COF2 vertical distribution, between 17 and 30 km, from ground-based FTIR spectra recorded at Jungfraujoch. This “multi-microwindows multi-spectra” approach, using the SFIT-2 v3.91 algorithm, has been completely characterized in terms of fitting strategy and information content. Some examples of COF2 vertical profiles inversions were also presented.

This year, we will complete the characterization of the multi-microwindows multi-spectra fitting procedure by exposing the full error budget affecting our COF2 partial and total columns products. Also, comparisons with COF2 model runs generated by the 3D CTM KASIMA (KArlsruhe SImulation model of the Middle Atmosphere) will be presented and critically discussed.
