Abstract

Ozone mixing ratios at pressure levels near 2 mbar, derived from Nimbus 4 backscattered ultraviolet (BUV) profile data and averaged within 13 latitude zones between 65oN and 65oS, are studied for the period November 1970 to April 1972. In agreement with previous analyses the largest temporal variations are negatively correlated with changes in zonally averaged equivalent temperature measured simultaneously with the Nimbus 4 selective chopper radiometer.-from Author
