Abstract: Polar mesospheric clouds (PMC) are sensitive to atmospheric background fields. Understanding the processes of mesospheric ice formation and variability of these ice clouds are essential to derive conclusions about the dynamics, long-term changes and atmospheric composition. In this work, the ice transport model MIMAS was used to examines the relationships between PMC and atmospheric background conditions in the northern hemisphere in the period 1979 – 2013.
