Impacts of Stratospheric Ozone on Climate

Session ID#: 27183

Session Description:
Stratospheric ozone changes have been shown to have far-reaching impacts on climate through radiative and dynamical effects. Modelling and observational studies have detected the imprint of ozone on changes in the subtropical and midlatitude atmospheric circulation with associated impacts on the ocean circulation, sea ice and regional surface climate. Uncertainties remain in the observed stratospheric changes, the dynamical understanding and magnitude of the climate response to ozone changes and the interplay between ozone recovery and greenhouse gases into the future. In the lead up to the 2018 WMO/UNEP Ozone Assessment, we invite papers on all aspects of stratospheric ozone changes and climate in both hemispheres and on all timescales.
