Short summary
This study explores dynamical variability of the polar vortex in the stratosphere among the Japanese 55-year Reanalysis family data. Results show that the assimilation of conventional (surface and balloon) observations increases the dynamical variability as the vortex in the model is more quiescent without the assimilation. The assimilation of satellite data in addition to the conventional data strengthens and/or advances some vortex weakening events, although the impacts appear in various ways.
