A unique documentary video

The Arctic and the Ozone Layer - Stabilizing our Environment and Climate.

Dear readers,

we would like to to show you a unique documentary video "The Arctic and the Ozone Layer - Stabilizing our Environment and Climate".

This documentary report was made by: UNEP OzonAction Branch and WMO. (In cooperation with Centre for Polar Ecology (CPE), Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice and Solar and Ozone Observatory, Czech Hydrometeorological Institute in Hradec Králové.

In 2011, extremely low-ozone levels were recorded in the Arctic region. This episode the North Pole – the Arctic- has triggered concerns on the trend of the ozone layer‟s recovery, expected to fully happen by mid century. With the support of the government of Norway, UNEP is investigating the causes of this depletion and the scientific explanations for such unexpected episode in the Arctic. This 18 minute-documentary reports the impacts on the region‟s ecosystem and the foreseen risks of the changes in the Arctic that may affect human life also in mid-latitudes. This video output is jointly branded by the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) and brings to light some of the so much discussed inter-linkages between the climate and ozone issues on the voices of internationally known scientists.
