11 year solar cycle ozone coefficients from CMIP6 ozone dataset presented in ‘The representation of solar cycle signals in stratospheric ozone. Part II: Analysis of global models' University of Leeds. A. C. Maycock

Short summary
The 11-year solar cycle is an important driver of climate variability. Changes in incoming solar ultraviolet radiation affect atmospheric ozone, which in turn influences atmospheric temperatures. Constraining the impact of the solar cycle on ozone is therefore important for understanding climate variability. This study examines the representation of the solar influence on ozone in numerical models used to simulate past and future climate. We highlight important differences among model datasets.
