Abstract:

At present lidar and spectrophotometric measurements of stratospheric ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and temperature at the Siberian Lidar Station (SLS) in Tomsk are directed to study dominating atmospheric processes determining the variability of the vertical distribution and total content of ozone. The results of these integrated measurements and synoptic analysis show that a high positive correlation between temperature and ozone and a variable correlation between ozone and nitrogen dioxide are observed in the lower and middle stratosphere for synoptic periods with strong dynamic activity of the stratospheric circulation processes. Sufficiently high negative correlation between ozone and nitrogen dioxide is observed in the periods with homogeneous stable circulation and weak dynamic activity. The highest negative correlation between ozone and nitrogen dioxide in winter-spring may be observed for a seasonal change of the stratospheric circulation transfer.
