"It's really good news", Paul Newman, chief Earth scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the report's co-author, said.
The UN estimates that Northern Hemisphere and mid-latitude ozone should heal completely by the mid-2030s, followed by the Southern Hemisphere in the 2050s and the polar regions by 2060. The fact that the ozone layer plays a decisive role in countering excessive amount of solar radiation and ultraviolet rays, so that the task of saving and restoring a place of honor is not the first decade.
It shows that the concentration of ozone-depleting substances continues to decrease, leading to an improvement in the layer since the previous assessment carried out in 2014.
In his opinion, the global success of the world initiative lies in the commitment by the 197 countries that gathered on Tuesday in Quito to define mechanisms to end the use of substances that deplete the ozone layer. It's a big deal since 10 percent of the upper ozone layer was gone in the 1990s, Newman told CNBC. This year, the ozone hole over the South Pole peaked at about 9.6 million square miles.
The ozone layer starts at about 6 miles (10 kilometers) above Earth and stretches for almost 25 miles (40 kilometers); ozone is a colorless combination of three oxygen atoms. Newman added that if we hadn't made these changes, two-thirds of the ozone layer would have been destroyed by 2065.
"We are only at a point where recovery may have started", Toon said, pointing to some ozone measurements that haven't increased yet.
