The upwelling planetary wave activity (PW) from the troposphere controls the intensity of the equator to pole transport of stratospheric ozone by the Brewer-Dobson circulation and thereby modulates the total ozone content at mid-and high-latitudes. Rayleigh lidar temperature data obtained from 1981 to 2001 at mid-latitude were used to study 5
