  author={Graham W. Mann and Scott Davies and Kenneth S Carslaw and Martyn P. Chipperfield},
Denitrification of the Arctic winter stratosphere has been calculated using a 3-D microphysical model for the winters 1994/95, 1995/96, 1996/97 and 1999/2000. Denitrification is assumed to occur through the sedimentation of low number concentrations of large nitric acid trihydrate (NAT) particles (as inferred by e.g. Fahey et al., 2001). We examine whether the meteorological conditions that allowed particles to grow to the very large sizes observed in 1999/2000 also occurred in the other cold… CONTINUE READING
