The role of the Mt. Merapi eruption in the 2011 Arctic ozone depletion
Description: One of the strongest ozone depletion events in the Arctic stratosphere was observed in March 2011 due to the strengthening of the polar vortex in February 2011. Earlier, in November 2010, the eruption of Mt. Merapi volcano (Java, Indonesia) with a maximum plume altitude of 18.3 km was recorded. The effect of aerosol heating in the tropical lower stratosphere after the Mt. Merapi eruption on the Arctic polar vortex strengthening in winter-spring 2011 is examined in this study.
