Identifying Ozone Variations Over Different Locations
From NASA My NASA Data
The depletion of the ozone layer is recognized as one of the Earth's most important environmental issues. The Antarctic ozone hole is recognized as one of the most striking indicators of ozone depletion. The location of the ozone hole is generally confined to the latitudes over Antarctica, although there are occasions when the ozone hole can move over lower latitudes locations such as South America. In this activity, students will study ozone variations over different cities to examine how ozone normally changes month to month. In the second part of the analysis, they will determine if and when the ozone hole occurs over these cities.
