Abstract

Based on the global distribution of various surface types the mean tropospheric residence time τ of ozone is estimated as a function of latitude. Due to the land-sea distribution τ varies from 50 days in the northern hemisphere to 190 days in the southern hemisphere. For the stratospheric-tropospheric exchange a sinusoidal variation with season is assumed. The annual variation of tropospheric ozone thus gets a sine function from mean, amplitude and phase of whch the injection function for the particular latitude can be determined.
