+ - Ozone on the Path to Recovery over Antarctica?->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "Ozone layer seems to be on a road to recovery over Antarctica as Satellite images indicate that the hole in the protective layer is the smallest as compared to its size in the past decade. According to Europe’s MetOp weather satellite, which is monitoring the atmospheric ozone, the hole over the South Pole in 2012 was the smallest in the last 10 years. The decrease in size of the hole is probably the result of reduction in the concentration of CFCs, especially since the mid-1990s, because of international agreements like the Montreal Protocol."
