Whatever happened to the ozone hole?

Lessons in timely action to avert global disaster

Atmospheric scientists Prof David Karoly and Dr Robyn Schofield discuss the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctic, and what effect timely global action taken in 1987 seems to have had in reversing ozone degradation. Presented by Dr Shane Huntington.

David Karoly is a Professor of Atmospheric Science in the School of Earth Sciences and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. He is an internationally recognised expert in climate change and climate variability, including greenhouse climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion and interannual climate variations due to El Niño-Southern Oscillation.

Robyn Schofield is an atmospheric chemist research fellow in the School of Earth Sciences, University of Melbourne.
