Looking for info about 2002 polar vortex rupture

  1. Dec 5, 2016 #1
    Hello everybody.

    I am currently doing some research about the evolution of ozone holes over antartica.

    I am interested in 2002's season, since strong winds from the stratosphere managed to alter the wind's clockwise circulation about the continent making it one of the weirdest recorded.

    So far I have found nothing about the origin of these winds.

    Can someone please tell me where can I find some information about them?

    Thank you very much for reading.

    Thank you very much. I think I will be able to write more thanks to this.

    On the internet; I am not suposed to use more than the text given by mi professor, it's title is twenty questions and anwsers about the ozone layer: 2010 update. The authors are David Fahey and Michaela Hegglin.

    I want to add more information to my report; the best I have found so far is this:


    But it hasn't any information abou the origin of the winds.
