For the study, the team made a record on ozone layer for 30 years by combining measurements of atmospheric ozone from 11 different datasets. This is partly due to the fact that ozone is also formed in the troposphere - at altitudes below about 15 km - by human activities.
Contrary to recent scientific assumptions, the ozone layer, which protects life on the Earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation, continues to deplete on a global scale even after decades of efforts to protect it, according to an worldwide study on Tuesday. But warming trends could be strengthening these currents, moving more ozone to the poles and leaving less at lower latitudes. The cause is now unknown.
Protective ozone layer is recovering but not over populated areas
CFCs and the other gases were banned under an worldwide agreement, the Montreal Protocol, and since then parts of the layer have been recovering, particularly at the poles.
Despite these increases, measurements show that the total ozone column in the atmosphere has remained constant, which experts took as a sign that ozone levels in the lower stratosphere must have declined.
During the study, the researcher's team detected that Ozone layer in the stratosphere is not recovering as expected, between 60 N and 60 S. "The decreases in ozone are less than we saw at the poles before the Montreal Protocol was enacted, but UV radiation is more intense in these regions and more people live there", informed Haigh.
THE ozone layer is continuing to decline in certain areas of the world, scientists have found.

The other is that very short-lived substances (VSLSs), which contain chlorine and bromine, could be destroying ozone in the lower stratosphere. Another reason may be an altered pattern of atmospheric circulation caused by climate change, which is leading to more ozone to be carried away from the tropics. The latter includes chemicals used in solvents, degreasing agents, and paint strippers. "Although the Montreal protocol has done what we wanted it to do in the upper stratosphere, there are other things going on that we don't understand", Haigh said.
It was thought that very short-lived substances would not persist long enough in the atmosphere to reach the height of the stratosphere and affect ozone, but more research may be needed. These chemicals could so far have been "an insufficiently considered factor in the models", said Ball.
"The study is in lower to mid latitudes, where the sunshine is more intense, so that is not a good signal for skin cancer", said Prof Joanna Haigh at Imperial College London, a member of the global research team.
