Spatial and time variability of the phases of basic total ozone oscillations are analyzed on the basis of satellite data. The method of allocation of a phase is based on reconstruction of composite time series in the selected spectral intervals and on analysis of the phase variations of such composite time series in time and in space. Variations of the phase of semi-annual and annual harmonics, and also quasi-biennial, quasi-five years' and quasi-decadal oscillations from 65оS to 65оN for 1979-2008 are considered.
Keywords: total ozone, satellite data, spectral analysis, spatiotemporal variability, phase of oscillations, composite method
