Stratospheric ozone: the possible effects of tropospheric stratospheric feedback


Journal Article

The existence of tropospheric stratospheric feedback mechanisms affecting variations in stratospheric ozone indicates the need to model the complete tropospheric stratospheric system. For instance, a decrease in stratospheric ozone results in increased photolytic destruction of nitrous oxide in the troposphere and thereby reduced production of nitric oxide in the stratosphere. Estimates indicate that this mechanism will result in a recovery in atomspheric ozone of about 6 to 13% of the initial perturbation.
