Abstract: Long-lived trace-gas profiles observed by the Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy (ATMOS) instrument around the developing polar vortex (the protovortex) during early November 1994 show distinctive inversions (lamiane). High-resolution profiles calculated using a reverse trajectory (RT) model to produce the majority of these laminae, demonstrating that most of these features arise from advection by the large-scale winds.
