A 2-D Model Simulation of Downward Transport of NO_y into the Stratosphere: Effects on the 1994 Austral Spring O_3 and NO_y


Simulations using SAMPEX and HALOE data suggest that NO_y produced by thermospheric processes and by relativistic electron precipitation in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere have been important to stratospheric NO_y and O_3 during the austral spring in 1994. The relative importance of the two NO_y sources is discussed. The results are supported by an analysis of HALOE NO_x and CH_4 data during October 1994 and are in agreement with ATMOS NO_y observations made in November 1994.
