OF GENERAL INTEREST: OZONE DEPLETION
Complex Chemistry of the International Ozone Agreements,"
E.A. Parson (JFK Sch. Govt., Harvard Univ., Cambridge MA 02138),
O. Greene, Environment, 37(2), 16-20, 35-43, Mar.
Agreements for protecting the stratospheric ozone layer have
been fairly successful so far, but it may be more difficult to
maintain compliance as the restrictions become tighter.
Developing countries in particular will require substantial
financial assistance to meet their obligations. Includes a
chronology and summary of international agreements.
Ideas of Secondary School Children Concerning Ozone Layer
Damage," E. Boyes (Environ. Educ., 126 Mt. Pleasant, Univ.
Liverpool, Liverpool L69 3BX, UK), M. Stanisstreet, Global
Environ. Change, 4(4), 311-324, Dec. 1994.
Used questionnaires and interviews to study the understanding
of pupils between the ages of 11 and 16. Most seem aware of the
elements of the problem, but many confuse it with the greenhouse
effect and other forms of atmospheric pollution. Evidence
suggests that such confusion of ideas is strongly held and that,
even with this relatively new and abstract phenomenon, ideas are
held in a consistent and similar framework by most pupils.
