Short summary
This study examines whether ozone data in the stratosphere (10–50 km altitude) can be used to benefit weather forecasts. The approach involves creating simulated ozone data and assimilating these into the US Navy's global weather model. Key findings are that assimilation of dense and accurate ozone data markedly benefits winds and temperature. However, the benefit is small when realistic ozone data are assimilated along with currently available microwave and infrared sounding measurements.
