The comparison of our model results obtained using a one-dimensional radiative model with the explicit temperature dependence with those calculated by global circulation models showed that the temperature trends observed in recent decades in the stratosphere and mesosphere are mostly caused by the radiative processes and result from variation of the carbon dioxide and ozone concentrations in the atmosphere. The qualitative agreement was demonstrated between the temperature trends calculated for the altitudes in the stratosphere and mesosphere and the experimental values.
