Variations in the Ozone Concentration in the Stratosphere over Moscow due to Dunamic Processes in the Cold Period of 2015–2016

New data on variations in vertical distribution of stratospheric ozone overMoscow in the cold half-year of 2015–2016 are presented. This period differed significantly from previous winters in a number of stratospheric parameters. The features of these ozone variations are considered and their relation to the stratospheric dynamics is studied. The most significant decrease in the ozone concentration in comparison with average values was observed at the beginning of March, 2016. The development of further significant ozone layer depletion similar to that occurred in spring 2011 was prevented by major sudden stratospheric warming in March 2016.
