Abstract
In March 2011, there were extremely low temperatures and ozone mixing ratios and extremely high water vapor mixing ratios in the Arctic stratosphere. The stratospheric temperatures sometimes dropped below ice formation point, possibly indicating the formation of polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) and destruction of ozone, delivered to the Arctic latitudes by meridional transport. Based on Aura MLS data, it is shown that the content of water vapor, required to form PSC particles, grows with decreasing temperature in the stratosphere until the latter is above the water freezing point.
