Abstract

Trends in chlorine monoxide (ClO) over the tropical-subtropical stratosphere (40° S-40° N) have been studied by analysing data from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) onboard the Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite (UARS) for the period 1991-1999 using the multifunctional regression model. Trends in ClO show latitudinal variation and they are almost symmetrical around the equator. Trend profiles reveal negative trends in the middle stratosphere (46-30 mb), no trends near 20 mb and then positive trends in the upper stratosphere. A negative maximum near 46 mb and a positive maximum near 6.8-4.6 mb level is observed over the tropical and subtropical belts.
