I/1 Overview: Atmospheric transport and ozone chemistry SS2008 Learning more about variability of atmospheric ozone related to transport and chemistry How is chemistry and transport changing in a future climate?
I/2 Atmospheric transport and ozone chemistry SS2008 Special topics Thursday, 14:15h (sharp)-15:45h, Room NW1/S3032 Lecturer: Mark Weber Contact: Room NW1/S4350, Tel. –2362, firstname.lastname@example.org Topics atmospheric dynamics (circulation and transport) radiative transfer, heating, and vertical transport middle atmospheric chemistry ozone chemistry and catalytic cycles heterogeneous chemistry and the ozone hole the tropical tropopause solar (decadal) variability and dynamical coupling greenhouse gasses and climate-chemistry interaction

I/8 Important issues in the assessment ozone recovery expected from leveling off of stratospheric chlorine (Montreal Protocol and ammendments), but role of stratospheric bromine/shortlived substances may become more important How does climate change affect the ozone layer (Antarctic ozone hole anomaly in 2002? changes in atmpospheric transport and chemistry?) Preface WMO O3 Assessment 2006:
I/9 Important issues in the assessment „state of the ozone layer and its expected recovery“ Chapter 3: Global Ozone: Past and Present Chapter 4: Polar Ozone: Past and present „specific aspects of the Antarctic ozone hole...(ozone hole anomaly) in 2002“ Chapter 4: Polar Ozone: Past and present „trends in the concentration of ozone depleting substances“ Chapter 1: Long-lived Substances Chapter 2: Halogenated Very Short-Lived Substances „climate change on ozone layer recovery“ Chapter 5: Ozone-Climate Interaction Preface WMO O3 Assessment 2006: Sections in the WMO ozone assessment 2006: I Source gases II Ozone changes III Future expectations for ozone, ozone depletion substances, and UV „stratospheric bromine... its impact on the ozone layer“ Chapter 2: Halogenated Very Short-Lived Substances Chapter 4: Polar Ozone: Past and present Chapter 6: The Ozone Layer in the 21st Century „ future projections and scenarios“ Chapter 6: The Ozone Layer in the 21st Century Chapter 7: Surface UV radiation: Past, Present, and Future Chapter 8: Halocarbon Scenarios, Ozone Depeletion Potentials, and Global Warming Potentials „ UV (surface) radiation“ Chapter 7: Surface UV radiation: Past, Present, and Future
