dc.description.abstract Connections, sometimes tenuous, have previously been noted between stratospheric Kelvin waves and several stratospheric trace constituents. The present study finds evidence of Kelvin wave signatures in ozone from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and Cryogenic Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer (CLAES) instruments aboard the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite. Predominant variations near 10 days are associated with a Kelvin wave mode previously identified in MLS temperature. Variations in CLAES nitrous oxide also show some evidence of influence by this Kelvin mode. The results presented here show that the observing characteristics of the instrument can influence the derived structure and properties of Kelvin waves. en
