This article analyses the annual mean vertical and latitudinal structure of the Brewer–Dobson circulation in the CMIP5 models. The strength of the tropical mass upwelling is found to increase at all altitudes throughout the stratosphere due to climate change. However, the width of the tropical upwelling region narrows below about 20 hPa, and widens above 20 hPa, suggesting different physical mechanisms...
