This thesis tackles two main problems in stratospheric modelling. First, the accuracy of the stratospheric transport provided by meteorological analyses, which is crucial for off-line chemistry transport models (CTMs) to produce accurate distions of tracers. Second, the description of stratospheric radiatively active gases included in numerical weather prediction (NVVP) general circulation models (GCMs), which in many cases is too simple for current stratospheric purposes.
