2010 Report on the Environmental Impacts of Ozone Depletion

The 2010 report from the UNEP Environmental Effects assessment Panel (EEAP) is now available from UNEP.  The report assesses the environmental impacts of ozone depletion and its interactions with climate change. The report is commissioned by the parties of the Montreal Protocol on Protection of the Ozone Layer, and the idea is to make it more accessible to the public, including politicans and policymakers,  by using language digestible to non-specialists the research fields involved. My own involvement was mainly with the first chapter of the report. The figure below shows how UV is expected to change over the years ahead.
