The Ozone Layer will not be well until 2065!

Antarctica’s ozone layer is in a bad shape

By Guy Clavel

CONCORDIA BASE, (Antarctica): Like bedside doctors huddled in consultation, scientists gather in the bone-cracking cold of Antarctica to examine, several times a day, a very sick patient — the ozone layer.

Roman Cormic, a researcher in atmospheric physics at Jussieu, France’s top university for science, probes with a gizmo called a light detection and ranging machine.

“My mission,” he explains at the Franco-Italian research station Concordia, perched atop the Antarctic Plateau some three kilometres above sea level, “is to measure the ozone, as well as the density of the stratospheric clouds and the presence of chlorine.” Florence Goutail, an engineer in the same field at France’s National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), is in charge of setting up and monitoring a specially-designed spectrometer that measures ultraviolet waves from high-floating balloons.

The collective diagnosis is unambiguous: the stratospheric blanket of oxygen molecules, some 15-35 kilometres above Earth’s surface, which protects human skin and eyes and plant DNA from dangerous ultraviolet light is ulcerated. It is being split apart by a hole that gapes and narrows with the seasons.

In October 2006 the ozone layer’s wound spanned a record 29.5 million square kilometres and showed a loss of 40 million tonnes, exceeding the previous record of 39 million tonnes set in 2000, according to the European Space Agency (ESA).

The primary cause of illness is known too.

Over the second half of the 20th century, human activity excreted a corrosive soup of man-made chemicals — especially chlorine and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) — that breaks down the oxygen molecules in the stratosphere.

The chemical reaction that thins ozone reaches its peak with colder high-altitude temperatures in the southern hemisphere winter, which is why the Antarctic skies are more vulnerable than anywhere else above Earth.

Something called the polar vortex – a persistent, cyclone-like weather pattern located near both poles – makes the condition even worse. CFCs – mainly aerosol gases and refrigerants – and other ozone destroyers were belatedly controlled by an international treaty, the Montreal Protocol signed on Sept 16, 1987.

But there is already so much of the pollution in the atmosphere, and some of the culprit chemicals take as long as 80 years to degrade, that large ozone holes are expected to persist for decades.

“I am not pessimistic for the time being,” says Jean-Pierre Pommereau, research director at the CNRS’s department of atmospherics physics in Verrieres-le-Buisson. Like living organisms, he suggests, the ozone layer will heal itself if given the chance.

Barring a string of extremely cold winters, the ozone depletion will stop and fully reverse itself, returning to normal sometime around 2065, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) said last year.

Oh, and I had a great Valentine's day, thank you very much. Started when my daughter woke at 5 am to give me a hug and wish me happy Valentie's Day, carried on to that afternoon when I picked my kids up from school and they were so excited about their parties and all the cards and candy they got. Then we took them to a parent's night out event at our church while my wife and I had a wonderful and romantic steak dinner at a great steak house here. Very slow and leisurely, we reviewed our last 16 years together and all the ways God has blessed us and brought us closer together. It was the deepest and most intimate interaction I have ever had with another human being. Picked the kids up, talked about what a wonderful and special day we had all had, got the kids to bed, and well, "culminated" our great day. And what did you do?




ooooooowww this is awesome! almost sounds as good as mine was.





partly cloudy today, cold, snowed earlier but it didnt stick. the sidewalks finally are melted.......

My take on the "hole" in the ozone.
Its always been there, always gonna be there, it changes constantly, its like a giant toilet sucking pollutants out of our atmosphere. If it wasn't there, just imagine how brown the entire sky around the world would be.

Derek had to ref three hockey games this morning, starting at 8.

When we left the house at 7 a.m., it was -8.

A big chunk of ice just came crashing down off my roof.

Any danger of flooding?


Not really if it goes away slowly.

We don't have storm sewers.

we're in the sticks.

We do have ditches though.

That's what the driver of this loader found by accident.




If you look at the picture , my house is right where the tall pine trees are.

One has no needles on the top third, it was hit by lightning two years ago.

More snow tonite, 1-3 inches. Sunday nite into Monday an ice storm. (The farmers alamanc said a noreaster here 2/6-2/27), so it may be round two next week! Yes Linnie, I did use that hammer on the windshield and the ice was so thick it only cracked that!

I hate when that happens.

Two wheels are really all you need with those things anyway.

Updated forecast Long Island from 10 pm tonite (SUNDAY) to 6 pm Monday 3-7 inches. Jersey will start getting it 4-6 pm when it is done there it should be 4-6. (Farmers Almanac predicted it for 2/27 so they are close). They predict it is the last storm of the winter season, though there is a day in March with some flurries.
