Abstract: We compare the mixing rations of N<sub>2</sub>O, CFC-11, CFC-12, CCI<sub>4</sub>, SF<sub>6</sub>, and HCI in the mid-latitude stratosphere measured by the ATMOS Fourier transform spectrometer with in situ measurements acquired aboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft during November 1994. Good agreement is found between ATMOS and in situ correlations of CFC-11, CFC-12, and SF<sub>6</sub> with N<sub>2</sub>O. ATMOS observations of CCI<sub>4</sub> are approx. 15 percent higher than the ER-2 data, but within the systematic uncertainties.
