The release of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons into the atmosphere through human activities has caused a massive hole in the ozone layer right above Antarctica and if unchecked, melting icecaps may inundate several regions of the earth in the future.
The threat of the Arctic: Ozone hole already in the north!
Some time ago, reports of holes in the ozone layer over Antarctica did not descend from the front pages of newspapers. Since then, the topic could not be heard almost nothing – until recently. Data for the current year are discouraged: now in other parts of the world, in the Arctic stratospheric ozone levels dropped to a record value.
Due to the destruction of the ozone layer in the Arctic, the radiation can reach levels typical of summer.
