Ozone Layer Hole Widens Further

Paris: The protective ozone layer in the world has witnessed a further widening of the hole. According to experts, an unusual increase has been observed in its size this year.

Observations from European Space Agency satellites reveal that, by September 16th, the ozone hole had expanded to over 10 million square miles (approximately 26 million square kilometers). Scientists are calling this the largest seasonal ozone hole ever recorded.

Ozone is a naturally occurring gas found in the stratosphere, which shields the Earth from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.

The first ozone hole was discovered in the stratosphere above Antarctica in 1985, primarily caused by substances that deplete ozone, like human-made chemicals. Following this discovery, restrictions were imposed on the use of these substances. Scientists worldwide have since been monitoring the size of the ozone hole.

According to scientists, our operational ozone monitoring and related predictions indicate that the 2023 ozone hole began to form initially and has been rapidly growing since mid-August.
