Diabatic Circulations in the Stratosphere

  title={Diabatic Circulations in the Stratosphere},
  author={Steven Pawson},
Three dimensional fields of radiative heating and cooling rates have been calculated from satellite observations of temperature, ozone and water vapour distributions in the stratosphere between November 1978 and May 1979. Error analysis shows that these fields are accurate to within <20% over the entire stratosphere. Zonal-mean cross-sections are broadly… CONTINUE READING
