This fifth report by a scientific panel examines developments
since its previous assessment in 1991. Ozone loss over Europe is
increasing, and high levels of ozone-destroying chlorine monoxide
were present at high latitudes during the last two winters,
creating the potential for serious ozone loss. Examines the
impact of aircraft emissions, potential ozone damage by HCFC
substitutes for CFCs, and the relationship between zone depletion
and climate change. A lengthy summary appears in Intl.
