We have run a chemistry transport model (CTM) to systematically examine the drivers of interannual variability of tropospheric composition during 1996–2000. This period was characterised by anomalous meteorological conditions associated with the strong El Ni ño of 1997–1998 and intense wildfires, which produced a large amount of pollution. On a global scale, changing meteorology (winds, temperatures, humidity and clouds) is found to be the most important factor driving interannual variability… CONTINUE READING
