Recently published ozone densities in the equatorial stratosphere and mesosphere from satellite stellar occultation measurements are appreciably larger than previous independent midlatitude measurements and ozone densities predicted by photochemical theory. We have calculated radiative equilibrium temperature profiles with a stratosphere‐mesosphere optimized model for each of these ozone profiles and find that the stellar occultation studies cannot be discounted on energy balance grounds.
