A statistical time series analysis was applied to the new version 8 merged Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SBUV) data set of ozone profiles for the years 1979-2003. Linear trends for the 1979-1997 time period are reported and are compared to trends computed using ozone profiles from the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) zonally averaged coupled model. Observed and modeled annual trends between 50°N and 50°S were a maximum in the higher latitudes of the upper stratosphere, with Southern Hemisphere (SH) tre…
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.
