[1] In this paper, we examine the tropical lower stratosphere and upper troposphere and elucidate the key role of ozone changes in driving temperature trends in this region. We use a radiative fixed dynamical heating model to show that the effects of tropical ozone decreases at 70 hPa and lower pressures can lead to significant cooling not only at stratospheric levels, but also in the ‘‘sub-stratosphere/ upper tropospheric’’ region around 150–70 hPa. The impact of stratospheric ozone depletion… CONTINUE READING
