We present the first three-dimensional model simulations of ozone on Mars. The model couples a state-of-the-art gas-phase photochemical package to the general circulation model developed at Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (LMD). The results do not contradict the classical picture of a global anticorrelation between the ozone (O 3 ) and water vapor columns. However, the quantitative approach shows significant departures from this relationship, related to substantial orbital variations in the O 3 vert…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
