Paper Abstract

The analysis of photochemical theory and HALOE, SAGE II, ECMWF/ERA-40 data indicate that ozone variations are inversely correlated with temperature in the upper stratosphere, while ozone variations are positively correlated with temperature in the middle stratosphere. Ozone layer mainly locates at middle stratosphere, where solar UV radiation is largely absorbt. The radiation is main action in middle stratosphere, so temperature variation depends on ozone variation. In the upper stratosphere, the ozone concentrations decrease rapidly, the photochemical actions instead of radiation actions play a principal role. The ozone-depleting reaction rates depend on temperature, so the coefficient correlation of Ozone and temperature is reverse.
