Abstract

An automatic spectrometer developed at Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology Pune is installed at the University of Mauritius, Reduit, Mauritius for monitoring total column density of NO2 and O3. The spectrometer is programmed for observations between 80° and 90° solar zenith angles in the spectral region 410-450 nm. The observations collected for few days during September and October 1998 are analysed, and total column densities of NO2 found to be of the order of 4* 1015 molecules per cm2. This preliminary result compares with similar southern latitude stations.
