Day Meeting

The discovery of the Antarctic Ozone Hole led to intensive research to find out why such large ozone losses were occurring in a region which was previously thought to be chemically inactive. This research involved both atmospheric chemistry and meteorology and so it is entirely fitting that the royal societies of the two disciplines are supporting this workshop. The finding also led to the Montreal Protocol which limited ozone-depleting gases and so to close involvement of atmospheric scientists with the chemical industry and the political process. Thus, while the focus is on the atmospheric science, talks will cover the industrial and political developments. The presentations will be given by leading international speakers and will cover the scientific and political importance of the discovery of the Antarctic Ozone Hole, as well as the latest developments.

Speakers include Paul Crutzen, Nobel Prize winner David Fahey, NOAA Michael McIntyre, University of Cambridge Jean-Pierre Pommereau, CNRS John Pyle, UNEP /WMO co-chair & University of Cambridge Jonathan Shanklin, BAS Keith Shine, University of Reading Susan Solomon, NOAA , former chair IPCC WG1
