We compare the results of observations and numerical simulation of the ozone-content variability in the atmosphere above Nizhny Novgorod for the winters 2015 and 2016. The data of the local ground-based measurements and the MERRA reanalysis, the satellite data (SBUV device), and the numerical-simulation results are used. The analysis of the results demonstrates similar patterns of the ozone-content variability for all data sources. The stable altitude maximum in the middle stratosphere with the short-term intervals of ozone-density increase is observed. Using the numerical-analysis data allows one to estimate the influence of the photochemical and dynamic factors on the observed ozone-content variability in the winter months in the atmosphere above Nizhny Novgorod.
