Paper Abstract

In this work the influence of solar protons of ground level event (GLE) type on stratospheric ozone were investigated. The asymmetry of ozone `mini-holes' caused by GLEs between the Arctic and Antarctic polar caps (N/S asymmetry) in terms of their spatial variations and possible mechanisms which are responsible for this asymmetry are discussed. There were considered GLE events: 29.09.89; 19.10.89; 24.10.89 and 21 - 28 May 1990 on data of balloon measurements and ground based ozone data of some Arctic and Antarctic observatories.
