Short summary
Thanks to the Montreal Protocol regulations for ozone-depleting substances, the decline of ozone concentrations has been stopped. A remaining major issue today is if the onset of ozone recovery can be detected. Ozonesondes have provided vertical distribution of ozone with high vertical resolution for several decades. In this study, we investigate how different operating procedures at ozonesonde stations and different ozonesonde data correction strategies affect trends in ozone concentrations.
