  • Description:
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is focusing a substantial fraction of its environmental research on atmospheric ozone (03). The justification can be stated simply: ozone is the single most important chemically active trace gas in the Earth’s atmosphere. The reasons for this strong assertion are manyfold. They stem from the diverse and fundamental roles that ozone plays in atmospheric processes. The two that are the most relevant to this Report on stratospheric ozone are: o The stratospheric ozone layer (between 10 to 50 km) is an ultraviolet radiation shield that is essential to life on the planet. o The temperature structure, and hence the circulation patterns, of the stratosphere depend on the distribution of ozone in this region.
