In this Goddard Institute for Space Studies "Science Brief," read about why the Antarctic ozone hole varies in size. An understanding of the variability of the ozone hole allows scientists to better quantify the impact of changing emissions of ozone depleting chemicals. This helps to predict the future of the ozone hole and to detect its recovery. References and contact information are included at the bottom of the page.
