Changes of zonal mean. Changes of zonal mean neutral temperature (left panel) and neutral density (right panel) due to trace gases other than CO2, such as O3 depletion (halved), H2O increase (doubled), and CH4 increase (doubled) under solar minimum and geomagnetic quiet conditions, at 0000 LT, doubled CO2, simulated by the NCAR TIMEGCM model. After Qian et al. ([2011]).
