The largest hole ever formed in the ozone layer has closed. If the ozone layer continues to recover at its current rate, it will be completely recovered in 2030, experts say
The largest hole in the ozone layer that protects the earth from the sun’s dangerous rays has been closed.
According to the details, the region of the Antarctic usually has a hole in the layer every year.
The hole in the layer was not the first time in the arctic region, but it was also in 2011 but it was not that big.
This time the hole had a volume of 100,000 square kilometers, which is now almost closed.
Experts say that if the layer continues to recover at its current pace, the ozone layer will be fully recovered in 2030.
A campaign was launched to reduce the use of globally harmful chemicals after the hole in the ozone layer in Antarctica which led to the hole.
But no evidence of human activity was found in the hole in the Arctic, which is why the European Space Agency called it an extraordinary ecological situation because a powerful polar vortex was spreading cold air.
CAMS statement on Ozone layer
CAMS declared 2020’s arctic polar whirlpool unusually strong and long-lived.
It should be noted that the layer acts like a sunscreen for the earth which protects it from the harmful ultraviolet radiation of the sun.
Extremely low temperatures in the atmosphere also contributed to the formation of this hole, and as the polar vortex decreased, the hole began to close.
Although the hole in the Arctic is taking care of itself, the hole in Antarctica is still a cause for concern, but there have been some positive reports.
