Abstract
Within STACCATO a new three-dimensional Lagrangian perspective of stratosphere - troposphere
exchange (STE) will be developed, focussing on "deep" exchange events. The mixing of stratospheric
and tropospheric air will be investigated in detail. The relative impact of STE processes on factors
controlling the oxidation capacity of the atmosphere will be studied as well as the variability and
possible trends of STE during the past decades. STE under scenarios of climate change in
future times will be investigated. Seven methods and models used to calculate STE will be
intercompared and measurements will be performed in an extended network, suitable to validate
the STACCATO models and to estimate the strength of STE and its impact on tropospheric
chemistry.
