Paper Abstract

On the basis of the mapping ozone spectrometer TOMS and the radiometer SSM/I data the results of analysis of the total ozone field perturbations by tropical cyclones in 1998 in the Atlantic active cyclogenesis area are given. The ozone field perturbations were determined as deviations from the long-term average value of total ozone. It is shown that a negative total ozone anomaly at the stages of a tropical storm and a hurricane can reach tens of Dobson units and its spatial size -- several hundreds of kilometers. The ozone anomaly characteristics depend on a tropical cyclone intensity and a storm wind zone dimension. The physical reasons of the peculiarities mentioned are considered.
