In January 2017 an essay appeared with the title:
WHAT IS THE POLAR VORTEX AND HOW DOES IT INFLUENCE WEATHER?
Authors are Darryn W. Waugh, Adam H. Sobel, and Lorenzo M. Polvani
The essay can be found here: http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/BAMS-D-15-00212.1
Unfortunately this essay does nothing to advance our knowledge of the role of the polar atmosphere in determining climate dynamics. It represents the contrived views of established climate science practitioners of the alarmist persuasion.
There is a relationship between the ozone content of the air and surface pressure that was discovered prior to 1900 that was well documented by Dobson in the 1920s. In mid and high latitudes low surface pressure is associated with superior total column ozone. Ozone is a warming, rarefying influence because it is a greenhouse gas mobilising infrared energy from the Earth itself, even within the region of the polar night. To materially change surface pressure ozone must…
