Abstract

The production, transport and distribution of ozone are simulated for a January with a global atmospheric general circulation model. In this model the ozone influences the radiational heating as well as the photochemical ozone production and destruction, the radiational heating influences the atmospheric circulation, and the circulation redistributes the ozone. The model has fairly successfully simulated the synoptic and time-averaged observed large-scale fields ot temperature, mass and velocity in the troposphere and stratosphere, although there are some deficiencies. - from Authors
