Title: Stratospheric denitrification due to polar aerosol formation: Implications for a future atmosphere with increased CO{sub 2}

Abstract

The authors use an atmospheric photochemical model to simulate the impact of increases in carbon dioxide on stratospheric denitrification, and hence on stratospheric ozone. Their model results show that an increase in carbon dioxide could result in a substantial cooling of the polar vortex, which could result in a significant increase in the denitrification rate. The lack of reactive nitrogen can feed into the chemical cycle for stratospheric ozone, resulting in a decrease in the destruction of ozone.
