Short summary
We examine global atmospheric transport that impacts chemistry and climate. In particular, we compare exchanges of troposphere and stratosphere air from large-scale processes as depicted from multiple modern reanalysis models (those intending to provide "best guesses" of the global atmospheric state at a given point in time). We find that transport varies considerably amongst the reanalyses and is sensitive to the choice of troposphere–stratosphere boundary.
