Journal of Atmospheric Modelling and Climate Change

Recent Highlights

Currently, this section is populated with a few of the Editor's recent papers. In due course this section will include JAMCC papers accepted for publication.

Open Struthers et al. [2009]:
The simulation of the Antarctic ozone hole by chemistry-climate models, Atmos. chem. Phys., 9 , 6363-6376, 2009.

The paper looks at the simulations of the ozone hole in five different chemistry-climate models and concludes that many of the models do not agree well with observations. In particular the edge of the Antarctic vortex is simulated to be less sharp than observed because of limited horizontal resolution and numerical mixing.

Open Tourpali et al. [2009]:
Clear sky UV simulations for the 21st century based on ozone and temperature projections from chemistry-climate models, Atmos. chem. Phys., 9 , 1165-1172, 2009.

This paper projects the clear sky UV amounts to the end of the 21st century. The calculations are based on ozone and temperature calculations from 11 coupled chemistry-climate models, the results of which were published in the 2007 WMO Ozone assessment. Because of the recovery of ozone over this time frame, Erythemal UV is expected to be between about 5% and 15% lower than in the year 2000.
