TOMS provides dramatic visual evidence of the annual growth and decay of the Antarctic ozone hole. The ozone losses over Antarctica result from reactions with the products of man-made chlorine and bromine compounds. Because of the tilt of the Earths axis, continuous darkness falls at the South Pole from March 21 to September 21. The dark region in the middle of the July 1 total ozone picture is polar night, where TOMS cannot make measurements. Ozone losses are in blue. Beginning in August, returning sunlight reaches the edges of Antarctica providing chlorine and bromine compounds with energy to rapidly destroy ozone. By mid September, the ozone loss peaks, creating an ozone hole over Antarctic. For more information see www.gsfc.nasa.gov-topstory-2003-1208toms.html (less)

A relatively warm Antarctic winter in 2004 kept the thinning of the protective ozone layer over Antarctica, known as the ozone hole, slightly smaller than in 2003. Each year the hole expands over Antarctica, sometimes reaching populated areas of South America and exposing them to ultraviolet rays normally absorbed by ozone. Scientists have new tools to study this annual phenomenon, and the human-produced compounds that contribute to ozone breakdown are decreasing. On September 22, 2004, ozone thinning over Antarctica reached its maximum extent for the year at 24.2 million square kilometers (9.4 million square miles). The largest maximum area on record was 29.2 million square kilometers, in 2000. On October 5, 2004, the ozone layer reached a low value of 99 Dobson Units. (less)

In this activity, students examine visible and infrared satellite images of Hurricane Mitch to learn how remote sensing provides crucial information to forecast the size and strength of a tropical storm. They plot the hurricane on a hurricane tracking chart, and measure the storms width, and the size of the eye. Satellite images and the hurricane tracking chart are provided. Summary background information, data and images supporting the activity are available on the Earth Update data site. To complete the activity, students will need to access the Space Update multimedia collection, which is available for download and purchase for use in the classroom. (less)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed the AIRNow website to provide the public with easy access to national air quality information. It is a joint partnership between EPA, State and local air quality agencies. The website offers daily air quality forecasts as well as real-time air quality information for over 100 cities across the U.S.. Links are provided to more detailed State and local air quality websites. A Publications page includes documentation on the Air Quality Index (AQI), air pollution health effects, and ozone monitoring, mapping, and public outreach. (less)

AIRNow is a cross-agency U.S. government web site that provides information and forecasts of air quality across the country. The organization's home page features news articles, information on the Air Quality Index (AQI), and highlighted forecasts for areas with AQIs of special concern. An interactive map shows weather systems, winds, and areas where air quality is likely to be compromised by ozone, particulates, ultraviolet radiation, or other pollutants, with links to current conditions, forecasts, and webcams for selected cities. There are also links to educational materials on air quality for younger students, interactive features and visual materials for older students, and curriculum materials for teachers. Other resources include information on AQI for health providers, older adults, and TV weathercasters; information on air quality and personal health, smoke from fires, and links to air quality information from other countries.
