Antarctic Ozone Hole


Item #d98dec45

According to a Dec. 4 report on the BBC News, the World Meteorological Organization stated that the 1998 Antarctic ozone hole has lasted longer than in any other year, nearly 100 days. The hole measured 13 million sq km for most of November, the first time since tracking began that the hole has measured more than 10 million sq km for so long. Over the South Pole, the ozone level was the lowest ever recorded for November. On the bright side, the hole in November was barely half the size it had been in September, when it measured 25 million sq km, two and a half times the size of Europe.
