Abstract : NEWELL has drawn attention to an anomalous increase of about 5 degrees C in the stratospheric temperatures in tropical and mid-latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere since 1963. He suggested a causal relationship between this increase and the eruption of Mount Agung in March 1963, which injected large quantities of volcanic material into the stratosphere. It is considered that the temperature anomaly was related to the effects of the Bali volcanic debris or to a change in the nature of the quasi-biennialo scillation. Evidence for the breakdown of the biennial oscillation in total ozone amount and lower stratospheric temperature during this period has been presented by Kulkarni and by Berson. (Author)
