Why is the Ozone hole above Antartica, where there is very less pollution?
Asked by satishlr | 3rd Jan, 2016, 08:50: PM
The severe depletion of the Antarctic ozone layer known as the “ozone hole” occurs because of the special atmospheric and chemical conditions that exists. Antarctica is colder than the Arctic circle because the ratio of land to water is higher. Therefore ozone depletion over the South Pole is greater than ozone depletion over the North Pole.
