NASA Continues Doctoring Antarctic Ozone Hole Data
NASA has now re-doctored its Antarctic ozone level for September 15, 2007 (see the new graph below, which was posted on NASA Ozone Hole Watch on Sept. 19, 2007 and compare it with their previous graph posted here yesterday). The doctored and re-doctored data serve to obfuscate the overall size and development of the Antarctic ozone hole.
The Fire-Earth estimate for the area covered by the Antarctic ozone hole on September 16, 2007 is 28.5 million km2 (NASA’s figure is 24 million km2). This means the size of the Antarctic ozone hole was increasing on September 16, 2007 rather than decreasing as indicated by NASA.
The Antarctic ozone hole on September 16, 2007 covered an estimated area of 28.5 million km2 (about 19% larger than the doctored data released by NASA) and was growing. The largest ozone hole ever reported by NASA covered an area of 26 million km2 on September 24, 2006.
