Data from the Swedish Odin satellite indicate that no arctic ozone hole will appear this winter, despite fears to that effect.
This winter the stratosphere in the Arctic region has been unusually cold, says Donal Murtagh, professor of Global Environmental Measurements at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden and responsible for atmospheric science research on Odin. The low temperature created large amounts of zone-destroying chlorine compounds in the stratosphere at the end of January. professor, which indicated a risk of the appearance of an "ozone hole".
There is more scientific "goobly-gunk" of which I don't understand, but it looks like no ozone was detected over the Arctic Circle. Random good news for the day, I wonder if the media will notice?
