Summary
Abstract: INDICATOR DEFINITION
The monthly means of total column ozone measured at Macquarie Island.

TYPE OF INDICATOR
There are three types of indicators used in this report:
1.Describes the CONDITION of important elements of a system;
2.Show the extent of the major PRESSURES exerted on a system;
3.Determine RESPONSES to either condition or changes in the condition of a system.

Quality Because stratospheric ozone at any time is determined largely by meteorological transport forcing conditions (rather than by chemistry constraints), this indicator is expected to have substantial interannual variability, and care is needed in its interpretation.

Trends in ozone will be analysed for signs of the success of the Montreal Protocol in phasing out ozone depleting substances (ODSs). However, the life-time of ODSs in the atmosphere is in the order of decades, and so the global concentration of ozone is expected to continue to fall until after the turn of the 20th century. Full recovery of the ozone layer will require some decades beyond the time that the supply and emission of ODSs is stopped (Fraser 1997). Values provided in temporal coverage are approximate only.
