28 Conclusion The comparison of GEM-BACH prognostic ozone against MIPAS measurements shows that the chemistry module has an ozone deficit in the upper stratosphere. It increases with height from 10 hPa and reach ~15% at the stratopause. The assimilation of ozone using MIPAS measurements produce analyses which are within observation uncertainties in all regions from 100 to 2 hPa. In the stratopause region analyses are largely weighted by the model due to the fact that the ozone photochemical lifetime is much shorter than 6 hr. The comparison against independent measurements shows that the radiative feedback from ozone analyses contributes to improve temperature analyses globally above 3 hPa. However, the radiative impact of ozone analyses can have a negative impact in specific regions as the NH stratopause region. The ozone radiative feedback has a significant impact on the model predictability in the lower stratosphere. At 50 hPa where ozone is dynamically driven, ozone assimilation increase the temperature predictability by ~1 day. The comparison against RAOBS in the region shows that ozone interactive forecasts also produce a smaller temperature drift in the region. Above 30 hPa, the ozone photochemical lifetime decrease rapidly and the impact of ozone assimilation is lost after several days. In this region, non-interactive forecasts have a smaller bias against RAOBS in comparison with ozone interactive forecasts.
