Three-dimensional modelling of trace species in the Arctic lower stratosphereA three-dimensional radiative-dynamical-chemical model has been developed and used to study some aspects of modeling the polar lower stratosphere. The model includes a comprehensive gas-phase chemistry scheme as well as a treatment of heterogeneous reactions occurring on the surface of polar stratospheric clouds. Tracer transport is treated by an accurate, nondispersive scheme with little diffusion suited to the representation of strong gradients. Results from a model simulation of early February 1990 are presented and used to illustrate the importance of the model transport scheme. The model simulation is also used to examine the potential for Arctic ozone destruction and the relative contributions of the chemical cycles responsible.
