Antarctic Ozone from TOMS: July 15, 2001 to October 9, 2001
Satellite data show the area of this year's Antarctic ozone hole peaked at about 26 million square kilometers — roughly the size of North America — making the hole similar in size to those of the past three years, according to scientists from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Researchers have observed a leveling-off of the hole size and predict a slow recovery.
