A new approach to the characterization of long-term changes in total atmospheric ozone: Applications of frequency and extreme value statistics

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper sets forth a new approach for describing long-term changes in total ozone by using extreme value statistics and firquency distributions. We applied this methodology to the database of column ozone provided by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer aboard Nimbus 7. We examined a geographic region measuring 7.0 degrees in latitude by 6.25 degrees in longitude in the midwestern United States from 1979--1991. On any given spring day, individual ozone measurements in this region show a large variability, where the differences between noontime maximum and minimum values sometimes exceed 100 Dobson units. During spring, the frequency of extremely low ... continued below

On any given spring day, individual ozone measurements in this region show a large variability, where the differences between noontime maximum and minimum values sometimes exceed 100 Dobson units. During spring, the frequency of extremely low ozone values decreased over the period 1980--1991, while the opposite situation prevailed during fall.
