Is the NASA modelling of the Maunder minimum ozone levels correct?
In this article l have described two cases that made me doubt..?
- AROSA ..SWITZERLAND TIME SERIES
Total ozone series in Arosa, Switzerland
Background of the NASA modelling
NASA/ SHINDELL COMPUTER MODELLING
“During the Maunder Minimum, the Sun emitted less strong ultraviolet light, and so less ozone formed.
The decrease in ozone affected planetary waves, the giant wiggles in the jet stream that we are used to seeing on television weather reports.

Will have to check this OZONE ‘thingy’ out in more detail one day soon
So.. Whats UP??
The time series of TOTAL OZONE at AROSA Switzerland seems to contradict NASA models findings?
At AROSA ..OZONE concentration went DOWN during global warming and has increased at AROSA since the global warming stall or hiatus..!!
OZONE measurements in AROSA..SWITZERLAND have increased since 1992?
The NASA model indicates a solar downturn should produce less ozone not more as is the case at AROSA since 1992
Maybe there is difference between the trends in surface ozone and stratospheric ozone?
Now further to this apparent contradiction
A recent stratospheric warming event ( SSW ) in the southern hemisphere in the first week of August 2013 is currently registering on the OZONE concentration map as a strong positive anomaly on August 14 th 2013
captured in the snap l took below
In other words the stratospheric warming event created MORE ozone
So the warm air created MORE …. not less ozone..
I undertook a case study on the SSW event here
