Introduction Two important climatic issues-stratospheric ozone depletion and greenhouse gas increase-and the apparent connection between them led to the holding of this symposium.
Can ozone depletion and global warming interact to produce rapid climate change?

The atmosphere displays modes of variability whose structures exhibit a strong longitudinally symmetric annular component that extends from the surface to the stratosphere in middle and high latitudes of both hemispheres. The pattern of climate trends during the past few decades is marked by rapid cooling and ozone depletion in the polar lower stratosphere of both hemispheres, coupled with an increasing strength of the wintertime westerly polar vortex and a poleward shift of the westerly wind belt at the earth's surface. Annular modes of variability are fundamentally a result of internal dynamical feedbacks within the climate system, and as such can show a large response to rather modest external forcing. The dynamics and thermodynamics of these modes are such that strong synergistic interactions between stratospheric ozone depletion and greenhouse warming are possible. These interactions may be responsible for the pronounced changes in tropospheric and stratospheric climate observed during the past few decades. If these trends continue, they could have important implications for the climate of the 21st century.

10: Air Pollution, Climate Change, & Ozone Depletion
Why do I care? The ozone layer protects us from excessive UV rays that contribute to skin cancer and other health problems. Figure A. Ozone layer within stratosphere contains highest concentration of ozone. In big cities during the summertime, air quality at the surface can be an issue when ozone and other gases increase to dangerous levels.
Ozone depletion and climate change , or Ozone hole and global warming in more popular terms, are environmental challenges whose connections have been explored and which have been compared and contrasted, for example in terms of global regulation, in various studies and books. There is widespread scientific interest in better regulation of climate change , ozone depletion and air pollution , as in general the human relationship with the biosphere is deemed of major historiographical and political significance. There are some parallels between atmospheric chemistry and anthropogenic emissions in the discussions which have taken place and the regulatory attempts which have been made. Most important is that the gases causing both problems have long lifetimes after emission to the atmosphere, thus causing problems which are difficult to reverse. However, the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol that amended it are seen as success stories, while the Kyoto Protocol on anthropogenic climate change has largely failed. Currently efforts are being undertaken to assess the reasons and to use synergies, for example with regard to data reporting and policy design and further exchanging of information.
There are strong interactions between ozone depletion and changes in climate induced by increasing greenhouse gases (GHGs). Ozone.

Chemicals discharged into the air that have a direct impact on the environment are called primary pollutants. These primary pollutants sometimes react with other chemicals in the air to produce secondary pollutants. CFC molecules are extremely stable, and they do not dissolve in rain. CFCs were used by industry as refrigerants, degreasing solvents, and propellants. When incoming energy from the sun is absorbed, Earth warms.
She had just been looking at the record of average surface temperatures of the Earth. The year was the warmest since reliable temperature records have been kept, and the twentieth year in a row in which the average global surface temperature was higher than the year average. The next year, , was the fifth warmest on record; the six warmest years on record have occurred in the last decade. If the global warming trend continues, the results could be depressing indeed: melting polar ice along with thermal expansion of the oceans could raise the sea level, flooding coastal cities, and many agricultural landscapes could dry out, becoming deserts.
Ozone depletion and climate change
In May , the department hosted a seminar featuring three prominent Australian scientists exploring the linkages between ozone depletion and climate change. The seminar will be repeated in Melbourne later in the year. This animation of the Antarctic Ozone hole shows its formation starting in July and its dissolution in December At this time, the major determinants of the size and depth of the ozone hole are the presence of ozone depleting substances in the atmosphere, and the surrounding climate, which if disrupted, may also disrupt the formation of the ozone hole.
