Abstract: Because exchange with the tropics is slower than multi-dimensional models generally assume, ozone at mid-latitudes apears to be more sensitive to elevated levels of industrial chlorine than currently predicted. Nevertheless, approximately 45% of air in the tropical ascent region at 21 km has been entrained from mid-latitudes, implying that emissions from supersonic aircraft could deplete ozone in the middle stratosphere.
