Abstract

The model chemistries used to calculate the effects of supersonic transports for Climatic Impact Assessment Program (Grobecker et al., 1975) and National Research Council (1975a) studies and of large-scale nuclear exchanges for National Research Council (1975b) studies cause our one-dimensional model to predict ozone depletions in 1963-1964 resulting from NOx injected into the stratosphere by the atmosphere nuclear tests of 1956-1962 larger (4-14% ozone reduction in 1963) than is easily consistent with observation. - Authors
