On the Latitudinal and Seasonal Dependence of Ozone Perturbations
Seasonal and latitudinal variations in model predicted chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) ozone reductions are not well understood. Two-dimensional model results indicate a maximum reduction in the high-latitude winter (i.e. a reduction in the seasonal fluctuation), but there are some indications that this result may be chemistry dependent. This opens the possibility that as our knowledge of chemistry changes the seasonal-latitudinal fluctuation of the predicted ozone depletion may change as well as the global average magnitude.
