A new study indicates that better atmospheric monitoring networks are needed to enforce the Montreal Protocol.
In the latest episode of its special series, AGU’s Third Pod from the Sun features scientists whose work found the source of a hole in the sky.
Since the 1970s, the stratosphere has cooled as ozone levels dropped and carbon dioxide levels increased. Chemical models of the temperature decline conflicted with satellite observations—until now.
A new technique can retrieve the profile of ozone from surface to tropopause by MAX-DOS ground-based measurements.
Precipitations of electrons with energies greater than 30 kiloelectron volts from the slot region penetrate at low altitude and can contribute to destroy ozone.
In Sweden’s wet heathland, scientists see how a sensitive ecosystem adapts to rising global temperatures.
Exceptionally comprehensive new maps detail current global concentrations and 15-year trends.
Cross-tropopause ozone transport in midlatitude cyclones, coincident with dry air intrusions, is derived from satellite and reanalysis data organized in cyclone-centric coordinates.
Emissions of short-lived chlorine-based chemicals that deplete ozone are increasing worldwide. But over some regions of Asia, these chemicals may be on a fast track to the ozone layer.
A simplified view of ozone chemistry can cause climate models to overestimate the response of jet streams to increasing greenhouse gases.
