top story: Ozone hole above Antarctica
The ozone hole is developing above Antarctica. The animation shows the area of the ozone hole and the minimum value measured with the GOME-2 instrument for the period 1 August - 17 December 2022.
GOME-2 can't observe ozone during the polar night, therefore the data around the pole are missing up to the 22 September. Due to the data gap, the size and depth of the ozone hole are underestimated until then.
