Abstract

There has been a rapid development over the past few years of three-dimensional chemical and dynamical models of the stratosphere. Despite their limitations the models are able to reproduce the main features of the stratospheric dynamics and trace species distributions. As an illustration some results from the models developed at the CNRM are described. The methodology for an interactive coupling between general circulation models and chemical transport models is discussed.
