Short summary
Version 6 of the Nimbus 7 LIMS stratospheric data set contains improved profiles of NO2. The variations of V6 HNO3 and NO2 at 31.6 hPa are reassessed for their consistency in the region of the Aleutian High (AH) from 14 to 28 January 1979. Photochemical model calculations initialized with the V6 data and including effects of heterogeneous reactions mimic the observed decreases of NO2 and increases in HNO3 over a period of 10 days along trajectories terminating in the AH region on 28 January.
