observational studies indicate that these eddies result from complex interactions between a strong boundary layer–topping marine inversion, inversion-penetrating terrain, synoptic-scale wind and pressure fields, nighttime drainage flows, and daytime/nighttime wind reversals produced by diurnal radiative cycles. The smaller borderline meso-gamma/meso-beta-scale eddy photographed and investigated in the current research appears to be a mechanically driven transient feature [see the discussion by Hubert and

-destructive, reactive chlorine species (e.g., Solomon 1999 ). Numerical modeling of PSCs has always been a challenging task as chemical and dynamical aspects of their formation and existence must be combined (e.g., Reichardt et al. 2004 ). Their formation is primarily influenced by large-scale processes such as the radiative cooling inside the Arctic polar vortex. Moreover, it is known that both synoptic scale as well as mesoscale weather systems influence the formation of PSCs and the associated chemical
