QBO and QTO of atmospheric trace elements nitrous oxide and chlorofluorocarbons: An update
Keywords:QBO, QTO, ENSO, Chlorofluorocarbon
An analysis of N2O (nitrous oxide) and CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) concentrations (monthly values) at various locations during 1978-2001 indicated seasonal variations. When these were minimized by calculating 12-month running means (12m) and 3-year running means (37m) were subtracted from 12m, the residues (12m-37m) showed oscillations with peak spacings in the QBO (quasi-biennial oscillation, 2-3 year) and in the QTO (quasi-triennial oscillation, 3-4 year) regions. The QBO at high northern latitudes roughly resembled the QBO of stratospheric low latitude winds and the QTO at low latitudes resembled the QTO of ENSO (El Niño/Southern oscillation).
Key words – QBO, QTO, ENSO, Chlorofluorocarbon.
