Abstract : The primary research emphases at LLNL are numerical modeling of the atmospheric response to stratospheric perturbations and processing and analysis of satellite infrared radiance data to determine global distributions of stratospheric ozone. The modeling effort at LLNL covers three major research areas: photochemical kinetics, coupled kinetics and transport, and radiative transfer. Tasks completed during the past year include: comparison of model simulations of stratospheric composition with observational data, assessments of potential changes resulting from aircraft engine emissions and other perturbations, ozone trend analyses, and assessments of coupled perturbations. The satellite data processing task has three major areas of effort: (1) radiative transfer and ozone retrieval methodology, (2) data processing, archiving, and distribution, and (3) data analysis, interpretation, and quality assurance. Progress in each of these areas is reviewed.
