    In just the same way that a core soil sample is taken of the Earth and archived for later analysis, how could the scientific community make use of 'test tube' atmospheric samples that are taken at altitude and physically returned to Earth.
    Would this be a viable support to current methods of remote sensing from the ground or satellite?
    Would this provide a valid archive of our upper atmosphere for historical analysis of ozone, volcanic ash, bacteria etc;

    Although I don't know of a consolidated database anywhere, we've been sampling the air for decades, particularly associated with field experiments, such as when I used to monitor a cloud physics station on a Hurricane Hunter aircraft (back when they used P3s).

    Recommend you research cloud physics, or cloud physics instruments.

    If you find a good link to a database please share it.
