Description. This volume brings together a group of important papers on stratospheric circulation that have arisen from recent research, most of them from the programs of two seminars on this subject held in London in and in Tokyo in circulation of the tropical lower stratosphere remain uncertain. Garcia-Herrera et al. () speculate that the tropi-cal lower stratospheric temperature response is associ-ated with altered NH planetary wave driving of the large-scaleequator-to-poleBrewer–Dobsoncirculation. On the otherhand,arecent studybyCalvo etal. (). The stratosphere (/ ˈ s t r æ t ə ˌ s f ɪər,-t oʊ-/) is the second major layer of Earth's atmosphere, just above the troposphere, and below the stratosphere is stratified (layered) in temperature, with warmer layers higher and cooler layers closer to the Earth; this increase of temperature with altitude is a result of the absorption of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation by.

I would like to subscribe to Science X .   The magnitude and variability of this stratospheric mass circulation, and its consequences for atmospheric chemistry, are primary considerations in the study of stratosphere–troposphere exchange.

Linz and Plumb compared their estimate with predictions of stratospheric circulation made by several climate models, and found that their estimate agreed with some models but not others. Linz said the team’s new estimate, and the method to calculate the stratosphere’s strength, can help to improve model predictions of warming and ozone. Stratospheric temperature change: Aerosols can also absorb some radiation from the Sun, the Earth and the surrounding atmosphere. This changes the surrounding air temperature and could potentially impact on the stratospheric circulation, which in turn may impact the surface circulation.

Before the onset of the warming, the stratospheric circulation is dominated by a cold and strong westerly polar vortex, which lies over the North Pole, covering most of the Northern Hemisphere outside the tropics (Figure 3). During a so-called major warming, this polar vortex is almost entirely broken down in a matter of days. Atmospheric Composition and Air Quality GFDL scientists aim to advance our understanding of earth’s past, present, and future atmospheric composition and climate. We develop sophisticated computer models representing the emissions, transport, chemical transformations, and sinks of trace gases and aerosols throughout the troposphere and.

However, results of numerical experiments with a general circulation model (GCM) suggest that more complicated nonlinear processes are also involved. In the present study, the effects of changes in the stratospheric circulation on the troposphere are investigated by comparing observed results with those obtained from the by:
