  • [1] The quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) is important for understanding the dynamical and chemical variability of the global stratosphere. Currently available wind data from the equatorial stratosphere extend back to 1953. Here we present reconstructions of the QBO extending back to 1900 that can be used to constrain climate model simulations. The reconstructions are based on historical pilot balloon data as well as hourly sea-level pressure (SLP) data from Jakarta, Indonesia. The latter were… CONTINUE READING
