Abstract : The mean pressure patterns in the middle stratosphere and the latitudinal distribution of total ozone are presented for both hemispheres. It is then inferred that the major stratospheric warmings are probably associated with non-linear baroclinic interaction between troposphere and stratosphere. The major difficulties in resolving the problem arise from the absence of vertical motion measurements and our present inability to model effectively on the planetary scale. (Author)
