The Antarctic ozone hole would have been 40% bigger by now if ozone-depleting chemicals had not been banned in the 1980s, according to research.

New NASA satellite data confirms what other research has shown, namely that the hole in the ozone layer appears to be getting smaller.

Our atmosphere "contains an unexpectedly large amount of an ozone-depleting compound from an unknown source, decades after the compound was banned worldwide," reports a NASA study out this week.

Researchers have found that an atmospheric hole over the tropical West Pacific is reinforcing ozone depletion in the polar regions and could have a significant influence on the climate of the Earth

Remember the Ozone hole? Decades ago it was a big concern. It was getting bigger and bigger and our emissions of ozone-depleting substances was identified as the main reason.

Industrialised countries should phase out HFC says Sunita Narain, Director-General, CSE in this presentation at CSE Annual South Asian Media Briefing Workshop on Climate Change, 2013 held from September 18-19, 2013.

The efforts of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol have, over the last 25 years, translated scientific realities into political decisions leading to concrete action on the ground.

"Vital Ozone Graphics – resource kit for journalists" is a joint publication of UNEP DTIE OzonAction and GRID-Arendal. It features 30+ new graphics explaining physical, technical, economic and political aspects of the disconcerting process of ozone destruction in the atmosphere and the human action that has been taken to stop the process.
