The ozone hole over Antarctica is reduced, scientists

Озоновая дыра над Антарктидой уменьшается, - ученыеScientists say that the ozone hole began to decrease.

British scientists said that they were able to find evidence of a reduction in the thinning of the ozone layer over Antarctica.

The researchers said that in comparison with 2000, in September 2015, the refinement decreased by 4 million square kilometers, but it actually is the size of India. Such changes can explain the phasing out of ozone-depleting chemicals.

For the first time the dramatic thinning of the ozone layer have been observed in the middle of 1980-ies. And in 1986, the American researcher Susan Solomon proved that the destruction of the ozone layer is due to the compounds used in the production of hairspray, refrigerators and air conditioners.

Due to the fact that was introduced a global ban on chlorofluorocarbons by the Montreal Protocol of 1987 until the situation in Antarctica has been gradually improving.
