We present a modeling study of the troposphere-to-stratosphere transport (TST) of pollution from major biomass burning regions to the tropical tropopause layer (TTL) and lower stratosphere (LS). We show that biomass burning pollution regularly and significantly impacts the composition of the TTL/LS. TST occurs through 1) slow as-5 ACPD
