Abstract

A relationship between the laminated structure of ozone profiles and atmospheric waves has been found from some EASOE ozonesonde data. This result is derived first from the correlation of ozone and potential temperature fluctuations. Then, the analysis of simultaneous measurements shows that the same wave can explain the structure found at different sites. When the wind profile is available, it may be related to the ozone structure, confirming the role of waves in this phenomenon.
