  • Observations show robust near-surface trends in Southern Hemisphere tropospheric circulation towards the end of the twentieth century, including a poleward shift in the mid-latitude jet 1 , 2 , a positive trend in the Southern Annular Mode 1 , 3 – 6 and an expansion of the Hadley cell 7 , 8 . It has been established that these trends were driven by ozone depletion in the Antarctic stratosphere due to emissions of ozone-depleting substances 9 – 11 . Here we show that these widely reported… CONTINUE READING
