than has been achieved using higher-resolution atmospheric models developed more specifically for this purpose (e.g., Zhao et al. 2009 ; Bender et al. 2010 ). Fig . 20. Tropical cyclone frequency (per year) for (a) AM3, (b) CM3, and (c) U.S. National Hurricane Center and Navy observations. The AM3 tropical (15°S to 15°N) wave spectrum has been evaluated in the format of Wheeler and Kiladis (1999) . AM3 is essentially without Kelvin waves or a Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) in contrast to the

ozone from about the late 1980s. Ozone loss in the Arctic is somewhat smaller and barely perceptible in this framework. Overall, the model results tend to be biased low in the Arctic by up to 40 Dobson units (DU) and high in the southern midlatitudes by up to 20 DU compared with measurements of the contemporary atmosphere. This is consistent with the known performance of the previous stratospheric version of the climate model ( Austin and Wilson 2006 ), which does not include tropospheric chemistry
