As part of the EU project RETRO, whose aim is to reanalyse the tropospheric chemical composition since the late 1950s on the basis of ERA-40, the 45-year meteorological reanalysis that has recently been completed by the ECMWF, this study addresses the question how to simulate the downward transport of stratospheric ozone given that the Brewer-Dobson circulation in ERA-40 has a strong bias.
