EVIDENCE OF ARCTIC OZONE DEPLETION


Item #d89sep1

Measurements made by instruments on high-altitude balloons in January 1989 showed an apparent thinning in Arctic ozone between 22 and 26 kilometers altitude coinciding with increased numbers of cloud particles. The results, reported in the July 13, 1989, issue of Nature, suggest the beginning of ozone depletion similar to that which creates the Antarctic ozone hole. (See paper by Hofmann et al. in PROF. PUBS./OF GEN. INTEREST, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Sep. 1989, and articles in Science News, p. 54, July 22, and New Scientist, p. 27, July.)
