We propose to investigate the effects of stratospheric ozone and water vapor changes on the width of the tropical belt and related aspects of the atmospheric circulation. This study will be twofold, encompassing both data analysis with satellite-sensed stratospheric constituent data and meteorological fields from reanalyses, and model runs designed to elucidate physical mechanisms.
